A DUI arrest can lead to many things for a driver, but it can be especially costly for insurance rates.
According to a blog post on the Progressive Insurance Web site, a DUI arrest will very likely affect your insurance rates, often directly affecting what you pay for insurance. The DUI could lead you to be considered a higher-risk driver, and some insurance companies may not insure you at all with a DUI on your record.
If you look at the average 30-year old driver’s consequences of having a recorded DUI conviction with a clean driving record is equal to approximately $4,000.00 per year in automobile insurance premiums. DUI’s are usually reflected on your insurance for 3 years, so a Georgia DUI conviction can mean over $12,000.00 in automobile insurance premiums over a 3 year period. Just ask someone you know who has been convicted of a DUI recently what effects they have experienced as a result therefrom.
It can be much cheaper over the long run to hire an experienced attorney who can work to get a DUI removed from your driving record instead of having to pay increased insurance premiums. The attorneys at Dove Law will fight to get a DUI removed from your driving record.
