Ramifications of drinking & driving
Besides the catastrophic personal injuries or fatalities that a drunk driving accident can cause, individuals who are convicted with a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher can face the following penalties:
- Jail time from 4 days to 16 months depending on the number of offenses
- Fines and penalties from $1,000 to $18,000
- Revocation of your driver’s license
- Impoundment of your vehicle
The bottom line is that a DUI conviction is a serious offense with long-term consequences that can uproot your entire life. Driving buzzed is the same as driving drunk – and the risk is simply not worth it.
Los Angeles personal injury lawyer Andrew Ellis has been helping drunk driver accident victims for more than 20 years, and hopes that you will party responsibly this year, and keep our roads safe.
