Being arrested for DUI, violators will face jail time, loss of their driver’s license, large fines and maybe sentenced to use ignition interlocks. Their insurance rates will go up, and they will be required to obtain SR22 insurance to be filed with the California DMV. Other financial hits include attorney fees, court costs, lost time at work, not to mention personal embarrassment and humiliation. Just remember: “Drunk Driving. Over the Limit. Under Arrest”
Drunken driving fatality rates have fallen in most states, but, still about eight percent of all drivers in the nation, as many as 17 million people, have driven drunk at least once during the past year. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released that data as the U.S. Department of Transportation kicked off the annual “Drunk Driving. Over the Limit. Under Arrest.” campaign aimed at getting drunk drivers off the road.
