Is the cost we're talking about here a direct cost, fines and re-licencing or does it include indirect costs such as additional transport costs during a ban for DUI and increased insurance costs once you start driving again
The money I lost included:
The fine for the D.U.I.: ~$2,000
The price of my car (which i totaled): ~$4,000
The price of my new I'm about to buy: ~$3,000
The price of the 18 month court oredered D.U.I. program/classes: ~$2,000
The price of an emergency response unit: ~$600
The costs for my transportation since the D.U.I.: Probably ~$1,000
And on top of all that, the price that my insurance rates are going to be at now!
Also, I have to pay for a SR22 form... which adds on additional insurance charges.
