DUI effects on your wallet
DUI costs more than you think. Get fined. Go to jail. Kill a friend. Kill yourself. You pick.
The financial cost is unbelievable. Here's the breakdown, but keep in mind that the cost listed is just the bare minimum. The total financial cost does not include killing someone and enduring your living days with guilt.
|Cost of annual auto insurance increase over 13 years||$40,000|
|Towing and storage fee ($137 a day)||$685 (at least 5 days)|
|Fines and attorney fees||$4,000|
|DMV reinstatement fee||$100|
|Estimated Minimum total||$45,435|
Keep in mind these fees are the bare minimum. These fees don't include hospital fees of the person you hurt, emotional and physical cost, the inability to get a job to pay off these fees because of the DUI record.
In a nutshell, these fees can go into the millions of dollars!
