That DWI Could Cost You A Down Payment on a Car
We all know the emotional damage, injury, and death can result from driving while intoxicated. The monetary damage from getting a DWI, however, is also huge, and it is often overlooked.
Assuming this is your first offense and you find a pretty inexpensive lawyer, you’re going to have to pay a minimum of $2,500 in fees. Think of all of the things you could do and buy with $2,500!
DWI attorney fees are (at minimum) equal to:
Almost a 25% down payment on a new Hyundai Accent
There are many additional costs of getting a DWI. $2,500 does not even include the cost of towing your car, paying for alternate transportation while your license is suspended, higher insurance premiums, and the impact a DWI on your record could have on getting a job in the future. Taking the risk of drinking and driving instead of spending a little money on a cab or calling someone for a ride isn’t worth all of this.
