As we enter into a long holiday weekend, we put together an infographic to show some of the direct costs that result from receiving a driving under the influence charge and remind you that it is never, ever worth the risk to drive drunk. Please keep in mind that does not take into consideration indirect costs, such as finding alternate means of transportation, or the costs that come with vehicle and property damage, or injury, and loss of life.
Have a safe and happy Labor Day Weekend!
