Driving Under the Influence Will Cost You
September 25th, 2015 — Martinson Agency LLC — Chaska, MN
Nothing good comes from getting behind the wheel of a car while you’re intoxicated. You put other people as well as yourself in danger. Also, if you are pulled over, you will be faced with numerous fines and future expenses. Increased cost of your auto insurance is just one of those expenses.
What kind of impact will a DWI have on your car insurance premium? It can cause your rate to be increased by more than three times what you are currently paying. Many companies will even terminate your coverage and make you find an auto insurance policy elsewhere. You should know that depending on the carrier it can take up to FIVE years before your policy can be rewritten. Also, in certain states, penalties for a DWI can double if your BAC (Blood Alcohol Content) is over a .16.
The best way to avoid a DWI violation is to refrain from driving after you have been drinking. (DUH!) If you have been drinking you should consider having a designated driver, calling a taxi or even riding the bus in order to get from once place to another. Any of these options will make the road a safer place for not only you and your friends, but for the entire community as well.
