DUI Law Punishments

Written by Information Association, LLC

It’s no surprise that current DUI Law mandates that DUI punishments cause problems in your personal life inrepparttar short term. With punishments such as temporary loss of license, community service, fines, alcohol education and assessment, etc… it forces you to do some “rearranging” of your personal life.

But what isn’t always known by most is thatrepparttar 138194 effects of DUI will last for years, even a decade. The punishments actually serve as a barrier from getting pastrepparttar 138195 offense and moving on with your life for many years to come. This is becauserepparttar 138196 initial punishments cause a domino effect of problems that can propagate through several years of someone’s life.

First, you’re forced to take a considerable amount of time off from work to perform your community service which usually involves picking up litter onrepparttar 138197 side ofrepparttar 138198 highway. If you’re paid byrepparttar 138199 hour that’s a considerable loss of income! If you’re paid in salary there goes your whole vacation allotment forrepparttar 138200 entire year (if you haven’t used it up already). This is assuming that you even have a way to get to work since your license has been temporarily suspended. The irony of all of this is that with all of this commotion you’re likely to lose your job while you need money to pay all ofrepparttar 138201 fines!

Potentially, you have someone who has either lost their job or has lost a considerable amount of income by not being able to attend employment. They are forced to payrepparttar 138202 court fines and fees along with all of their other monthly bills on an even smaller income then they had beforerepparttar 138203 offense. So what is happening is all of your monthly expenses are rapidly increasing but your income has either ceased to exist or significantly decreased.

You only live a few blocks away but as you drive you see something strange inrepparttar 138174 distance. You see a series of bright lights ahead and a bunch of cones spread out alongrepparttar 138175 road.
