You’ve got the initial buzz kill of getting pulled over by one of Maryland’s Finest.
Then you’ve got the embarrassment of attempting to pass a straight line test alongside a dark road and trying to find your nose with arms that won’t quite cooperate.
And after you’re done with all the jail time – and believe it – there will be jail time – and all the court appearances, you get to hand over to your lawyer and the courts approximately $15,000.
Yep, that’s right. The average cost of an alcohol-impaired DUI conviction in Maryland is around $15,000.
But let’s pretend, for a moment, that you’ve got an extra $15,000 to burn. What does a DUI conviction mean to you then?
What do you think your friends are saying about you in hushed whispers or when you’re not around?
What do you think your parents think about your newly minted Scarlet Letter?
Do you think your wife or girlfriend thinks you’re any cooler or has any REAL sympathy for you?
Your friends may offer some glowing words of consolation, but at the end of the day, they’re thinking the exact same thing you are: It was a bad decision to drive home after drinking all night at a downtown Baltimore bar.
This website is here to offer you some information and practical alternatives to driving home drunk. We hope you are able to use this information so you don’t become one of the 24,000 Losers that are arrested for DUI in Maryland each year.
