Driving drunk is dangerous to you and others on the road. A DUI will cost you much, including the loss of your insurance. But the loss of your auto insurance may be the least of your worries. The financial toll of a conviction will play out for years to come, and in many states, that can add up to $20,000 before everything is over. Costs can include bail, fines, legal fees, increased auto insurance premiums, loss of work income, court-ordered alcohol education programs, and more.

“The financial impact of a DUI arrest on any one person can vary greatly depending on many factors, such as driving record, jurisdiction, blood-alcohol level, attorney fees and fines, not to mention the specific circumstances of the incident and whether there was an accident or if anyone was injured.” Craig Gullkot; Bankrate
