Know The Risks
Conviction on a drunk driving charge can result in serious penalties, including fines, jail time, license suspension or revocation, and more. A conviction for a first offense DUI will put you at risk for even more serious consequences should you ever be charged with a second or subsequent drunk driving offense.
Stop the Spiral Before It Starts
A DUI conviction can start a downward spiral of negative behaviors and associated legal consequences. For example, people with revoked licenses often cannot get to work. Faced with the need to support themselves and their families, they might drive despite the revocation. This can lead to further criminal charges.
