In addition to the sanctions imposed by the court for the violations previously listed, if you can find an insurance carrier that will insure you, your premiums will increase significantly. DUI convictions can eliminate you from qualifying for college degrees, scholarships and employment.

If you injure or kill someone while driving impaired, the penalties increase significantly to include long term state prison sentences. Remember

You Drink & Drive. YOU LOSE!

Driving While Impaired Is A Crime!

Highway safety is everyones responsibility.

It is up to all of us to be responsible motorists. Driving safely sets a good example for others, especially young people.
