Passenger Rights During A Traffic Stop in Illinois | Do Passengers in a Traffic Stop Need to Show ID?

What rights do passengers have during a traffic stop? Do they have to show ID to police? This Learn About Law episode answers questions about passenger rights during a traffic stop.

In this article, we explain passenger rights in a traffic stop in Illinois.  The United States Supreme Court has ruled that passengers in a vehicle which has been stopped by police have been “seized” for purposes of asserting their fourth amendment rights against unreasonable searches and seizures. Therefore, passengers generally have the same rights as the driver when stopped by police for a traffic violation.

At O'Flaherty Law, our Chicago DUI, traffic, and criminal attorneys discuss the various ways your license can be suspended along with the length of time each specific suspension could last. For example, If you refuse a breathalyzer for your first DUI, this will result in an automatic one-year suspension, and a breathalyzer reading a BAC higher than .08 will also result in an automatic license suspension, but this suspension typically lasts 3 to 6 months. 

it's important to know you have the right to a hearing even if your license is suspended.  If you fail to file a Petition for Hearing within 90 days of your arrest, your right to a hearing will be waived.  Within 30 days of the filing date you will receive a date for your hearing. During this hearing, some questions to expect are:

  • Did the officer have probable cause to pull you over?
  • Did you receive the proper legally required statutory summary suspension warnings? 
  • Was a proper arrest made? 
  • Did you actually fail the breathalyzer?

The O’Flaherty Law team will make sure you are well informed on all of your options.and provide aggressive defense strategies to defend your rights

See What Qualifies as an Aggravated DUI in Illinois

In this video, Chicago traffic and criminal attorney Kevin O'Flaherty discusses under what circumstances a DUI becomes an aggravated DUI

Chicago DUI Attorneys, Chicago Traffic Attorneys, Chicago Criminal Attorneys, Chicago DUI Lawyers, Chicago Traffic Lawyers, Chicago Criminal Lawyers

When faced with a DUI, there are important points you need to know. 

  • If you receive a DUI, it's possible the charges can be reduced or dismissed 
  • If the court allows neither, supervision is possible which enables you to keep your licenses along with a conviction off your record

The caveat to this is that you are required to complete everything the court requests in regards to their terms for supervision. This could include alcohol evaluations and classes in addition to fines that can be a condition to receiving court supervision.  If you are granted court supervision, your case will be dismissed once supervision and all court requirements are met, usually in up to 12 months.  

After a second DUI, circumstances become more difficult and you lose any eligibility for court supervision and the revocation of your license is a certainty.  Charges escalate exponentially, if you a repeat offender and it is crucial to know that receiving a third DUI is considered a felony in the state of Illinois.  If you're faced with one or more DUI's it is imperative to have an experienced and skilled attorney to fight for your rights.  Our Chicago DUI attorneys will give your case the attention and detail it vitally needs to put you in the best position to overcome charges against you.
