Did you know that drunk driving costs Americans more than $199 billion a year? Well, that is quite a lot of money! Especially for the ones who actually had to pay towards this amount. The cost of getting a DUI on your record has a lasting effect that goes beyond simply money. This will stay on your permanent record for up to 7 years. When you apply for a new job, this will show up in your background check.
It will cause you lots of time as well going to meet your lawyer, if you are smart enough to get one, and going to court. You could potentially get your license suspended and have to find different forms of transportation to get to work. Your vehicle will also temporarily be impounded. This could also put a strain on your family as well, especially financially because fines range in the few thousands of dollars. You can also hinder your working relationships as well. Sometimes when you get a DUI, you may have to spend a night in jail, which can cause you to miss work for a few days. This may cause you to lose your job or be on bad terms with your employer.
If this is not your first offense, you could have to install a ignition lock that will not start your car if it detects you have been drinking in the breathalyzer, which is a huge hassle for you. There is also potential jail time as well! Let’s not forget to mention the huge increase in insurance premiums. We are not talking about a couple of bucks. Your rates can go see an increase ranging in the hundreds, which will take years to go down.
