In Illinois you can be charged with a DUI on private property. However, suspension issues regarding whether you took and failed the breathalyzer (or refused to take it) should not apply.

YES, SINCE THE STREETS ARE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC LIKE A PARKING LOT FOR A BUSINESS.

You may pay for maintenance, but I'm sure local law enforcement patrols the area and responds to emergencies. You can still be stopped and given a DUI.
