"Silence is safer than speech." —Epictetus (c. 50–120 A.D.)
A driver's license is a privilege, not a right.
By accepting a license, you impliedly consent to giving a blood, breath, urine sample for testing of alcohol content if arrested for OWI. Failure to comply without legitimate (mainly medical) reasons will result in a 1 year driver's license suspension and will count as a prior OWI even if you are acquitted or the charges reduced/dismissed.
Why are confessions so important to the police? It is simply this: they are a quick way to solve a crime and close a case. Often, it saves the police the hassle of doing extensive police work - searching for genuine physical evidence, interviewing potential witnesses, reviewing documents, applying for search warrants, etc.

City v. SA
Sometimes clients are referred to our office because the stakes are high and the outcome of the trial could permanently effect a person's livelihood. That was the case when SA was referred to our office from a prominent Illinois attorney who knew that this case would require special attention for two reasons: SA had an Illinois license; and SA had a commercial driver's license.
