Article 3 (Dec 2019): Save time: Just tip your waiter or waitress $10,000
December 30, 2019It's New Year's Eve. You've never had a DUI before and you don't think you'll get one now.
So one for the road? Before you take that drink and get behind the wheel, tip your waitress $10,000. Can't afford that kind of tip? Then you can't afford a DUI either.
There's a world of grief, expense, and a lot of time and trouble with a DUI. If you get one, you are guaranteed to spend the next year or so coping with the consequences. The cost in dollars of a drunk driving conviction is staggering. Alcohol.org estimates the cost of a drunk driving conviction to be $10,000 to $25,000. But in some states the cost is much higher.
Here are some of the costs in terms of money and time:
- You're going to jail. Bail yourself out for $100 to $2,500.
- Bail your car out of impound: $100 to $1,200.
