Avoiding The Consequences Of A DUI Conviction
Driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs, sometimes referred to as driving while intoxicated (DWI), can have serious, lifelong consequences. Immediate consequences can range from a suspension of your driver’s license, fines, DUI classes, and even imprisonment. Long-term consequences can result in job loss, insurance hikes, and long-term costs.
If you are a truck driver or in another occupation that requires driving, the consequences of a DUI conviction threaten your livelihood.
Generally, first offenses can result in jail time, but more often result in other penalties such as fines, DUI classes, and probation. However, second and third offenses will carry even more serious consequences including extended license suspension and mandatory jail sentences. Where jail time is required, there are usually alternative sentencing options, such as house arrest, community service, or even private jail.
