Driving a motor vehicle in the State of Illinois, or anywhere else, for that matter, is a privilege, and not a right. This privilege can be taken away for many reasons, small or large. Generally, most major traffic offenses, including Reckless Homicide, Driving Under the Influence (DUI), and speeding offenses are governed by the Illinois Vehicle Code, while many more minor offenses are governed by ordinances of each city, town, or village in which the offense occurs.
