Back in the seventies if you got caught drunk driving you could expect a big name insurance company to drop you like it hot potato (after of course paying for everything they were contracted to pay for). You paid through the nose for your next insurance coverage; if that is you could even find someone to cover you. Even with a good DUI lawyer, you may end up getting a light sentence or no jail sentence and all; but trust me when I tell you that you will be paying for that mistake for years to come… One way or another.
You Don’t Have A Leg To Stand On
If there is even the remotest of chances that you could possibly beat this rap with a really good lawyer, you might stand a chance of keeping the car insurance that you had; but don’t be surprised if your rates at least jump up a bit. Beating a drunk driving rap isn’t exactly easy especially if you submit to (and fail) a breathalyzer test on the spot. Refusing to take the test however is an automatic charge and will end you up in the hospital submitting to a urine test. How fun for you. Good thing you had all that alcohol, you won’t have a problem giving them a specimen.
Hey, We’ll Insure You!
We don’t care if you drove with a suspended or revoked license; we don’t care if you drove with no license whatsoever; we’re OK with the fact that you ran someone down once upon a time behind the wheel; we don’t even mind that you’ve been charged and convicted of a DUI… Hey everybody makes mistakes! I’ve actually seen something remotely resembling that on a billboard while driving down the highway. Well you better hope that someone forgives and forgets because you might have difficulty paying for car insurance from now on. It’s not that you won’t be able to be insured; oh far from it. Someone’s going to be overjoyed to insure you! Because here’s what… They saw you coming.
They will forgive you all your sins all the way to the bank.
