The holidays are a time filled with indulgence – holiday parties galore, big meals, and big spending. One thing you definitely don’t want to be spending big on is a DUI – the cost is high both personally and monetarily. On average, a DUI will cost you about $10,000 in fines and fees. That’s a lot of dough to be throwing out the window for a poor decision to get behind the wheel. NHTSA wants to spread the word about drug-impaired driving and to remind all drivers: If you are impaired by drugs and thinking about driving, pass your keys on to a sober driver. If you feel different, you drive different. Drive high, get a DUI.
$10,000 can get you some pretty sweet stuff. Everyone has their own preferences of how they would wish to spend the money they’ve saved, but here are some ideas for how you could put that potential DUI dough to work. Leave those car keys at home and treat yo’ self to this $10,000 shopping spree!
