DUIs: The Expensive Ride Home

If you have been drinking and are ready to head home, you may be reluctant to call a cab. In your mind, the expense of a cab is too much to pay when you believe that you can get home safely on your own. Yet in reality, if you are charged with DUI you will end up spending an average of $6,500; that is one expensive ride home. Even if your fines are only in the triple digits, the costs of a DUI arrest will still add up.

Many times your DUI tab will start as soon as the sirens come on. You will need to pay for your car to be impounded when you are arrested, and will also be charged for some of the expenses of your arrest. If posted someone will need to pay you bail. You will then need to pay the costs of an attorney’s fees and the expenses associated with your crime.

In the end, your DUI could cost up to $27,000 for a first time offense when all factors are considered. You will also be costing taxpayers. The average cost of a night in jail is about $67, which is paid by another citizen of your state. If you are issued an ignition interlock device, then you will need to pay for the installment of this device, and will be forced to use it before you turn on your car.

You may also need to pay for expenses associated with a rehabilitation program or driving school. If you have been charged with a DUI, you want to avoid as many of these expenses as possible. In order to keep your bank account safe, you will want an experienced DUI lawyer on your side. Talk to a criminal defense attorney at Thomas & Paulk for more information!
