Drinking And Driving: Can You Really Afford To?

With the You Drink, You Drive, You Lose program in full swing, the true costs of drinking and driving were discussed this morning with local attorney John Masterson. If you missed it, here are some of the numbers

Defense Attorney Fees (to plead out)…………….$1500 
Car Tow fee…………$115
Car storage fee (per day)……..$25
Bail fee (usually 15% of maximum fine amount(……..$150
Driver’s License reinstatement fee…………….$50
Driver’s License retest/new license………….$20
Court fee..$10
Minimum fine………..$550
Alcohol Evaluation (ASI) …. $75
Possible additional costs:
Alcohol Education Classes (8 hr)…..$175
Auto Insurance increase* (average 75%)….. $2000 per year for 3 years**
* First offense, no accident, no injury
** DUI’s require that liability insurance information be filed and maintained with the state of Wyoming for 3 years. If the insurance lapses (for any reason); the 3 year period starts over. (This price is based on an index for a 25 year old male with a new vehicle, with no previous bad driving record.)
