DUI IS COSTLY
Illinois State Police Trooper Doug Francis, Safety Education Officer for District 18 in Litchfield, reminds drivers the cost of getting caught drinking and driving is too high. The average cost of a DUI conviction is more than $16,000.00 including fines, court costs, and legal fees. The cost of a DUI crash may run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars after all medical bills and law suits. The penalty for a DUI fatality crash, reckless homicide, is 3 - 14 years in prison, up to $25,000.00 in fines and mandatory revocation of driving privileges. The blood-alcohol concentration limit in Illinois is .08%. Plan for someone to be a designated driver if you drink, and make sure they are someone you can trust not to drink if they are driving.
