10 Reasons Why You Really, Really, Really Don’t Want A DUI

Besides the fact that you can hurt someone, driving under the influence is embarrassing, expensive, and just not worth it.

Posted on

1. Your face might be printed in your local police blotter for all your neighbors to see, which is hella embarrassing.

2. If you're under 21, say goodbye to your license. You're going to be asking all your friends for rides for a loooong time.

3. You’re going to have to spend a day in court, and it’s not going to be anything like the crime shows you watch on TV.

4. Want to go on a nice vacation? Good luck trying to save when you have to pay all your lawyer fees!

5. Also, your insurance rates are going to skyrocket. Can you afford added bills?

6. Ummm, your parents are going to be super disappointed. They can’t handle this sorta thing.

7. You’ll get fingerprinted, which means future employers will be privy to a stupid mistake you made in the past.

8. Even worse, you could be fired from the job you currently have.

9. If you’re convicted, you may have to do community service. You’re going to miss out on a lot of fun weekend plans.

10. Jail. Just jail.
