The Consequences of Driving Under the Influence
Regardless of all the warnings the people hear and see every day, the number of DUI arrests each year is disappointingly high. From personal reminders from loved ones to outdoor advertising to television and movies to the news to real-life accidents we see and hear – there are all these warning signs, yet people still choose to get behind the wheel while intoxicated.
If you get arrested you will likely be booked in jail for a day or two. You will likely pay a fine and perhaps perform community service and/ or have your license revoked. First-time offenders will face a lighter sentence than repeat offenders. And the sentencing will also depend on if anyone was injured or any property was damaged.
You will likely have the option of bailing out of jail for the remaining days until your court date, and we at Absolute Bail Bonds highly recommend this opportunity. The amount due will be dependent upon your criminal record, how intoxicated you were, and what damage was done. By posting bail, you may return to work, to your family, to your life instead of sitting in jail.
It doesn’t matter how little or how much substance you have in you. Driving intoxicated is driving intoxicated and we want to make sure this does not happen again because this time was once enough.
