MADD Illinois would like to thank all Law Enforcement partners across Illinois. Whether a DUI resulted in a conviction or not, your work to arrest a DUI offender and take that individual off the road may have saved lives by their arrest. Thank you for your dedication and hard work to keep everyone safe on Illinois roadways, and for doing your part in the enforcement and prevention of impaired driving. MADD Illinois would also like to thank all State’s Attorney’s Offices across the state for your great work in prosecuting DUI cases to prevent offenders from committing this serious crime again. Your work helps enforce DUI penalties which help saves lives and keep roadways safe in Illinois. MADD Illinois would also like to thank all Judges across the state of Illinois who work to uphold DUI laws and to provide fair and clear judgement in impaired driving cases. Impaired driving is a serious, dangerous crime, and your work as judges helps enforce DUI penalties to prevent these crimes from occurring again. MADD Illinois would also like to thank the Illinois Department of Transportation which has been a tremendous partner to MADD by providing mission-critical grant funds that help support the Court Monitoring Program in Illinois. Thank you for your continued support as we work together to create safer roadways to save lives. IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE HAS BEEN AFFECTED BY DRUNK OR DRUG- IMPAIRED DRIVING, MADD IS HERE TO HELP.

MADD Illinois concludes from our work in 2020 and from this report that more work is needed to prevent impaired driving on our roadways. Court monitoring is one of MADD’s many programs that works in impaired driving prevention. MADD Illinois is also a charter member of both the Illinois DUI Task Force and the Illinois DUI Cannabis Task Force. Efforts must continue to collaborate with partners all around the state, including law enforcement, State’s Attorney’s Offices, judges, schools, corporations, all citizens, and others as we all play a part in keeping impaired driving off our roadways. MADD Illinois has made strong efforts and will continue to push harder into the future to keep impaired driving off Illinois roadways.
