How Much Could a DUI Cost You? (Infographic)

Nearly 12,000 people die each year from drunk driving related incidents in the U.S. The tragedy of drunk driving is infamous; the legal cost and consequences aren’t as well-known. A DUI is no small ticket, and the infographic below may leave you thinking twice before sipping that second cocktail!

Think ahead BEFORE you take a drink, because alcohol impairs your judgment.

As Heidi A. pointed out, the drunk driver often survives the crash that kills another family because he (or she)'s so relaxed -- who wants to live with that guilt for the rest of their lives? Even if you're not drunk, who wants to think they could have reacted faster to avoid that accident if they hadn't had a couple of drinks?

If you drink a lot just move to the city and sell your car.

When I first started driving, my dad's advice was to drive like everyone else on the road is drunk. Couldn't hurt.

IT CAN COST YOU YOUR LIFE, OR SOMEONE ELSE'S.. - IF YOU DRINK AND DRIVE, YOUR LICENSE SHOULD BE TAKEN AWAY FROM YOU PERMANENTLY... - HERE IN B.C., THERE'S NOT A ''WEEK'' THAT GOES BY, WHERE SOMEONE IS NOT KILLED BY A DRUNK DRIVER... - NOT A 'ONE' !!!
