A DWI Punishment You May Have Control Over is Your Auto Insurance Rate
If you have recently been arrested for driving under the influence you may have only experienced a small part of the DWI punishment that lies ahead of you. I’m not talking about the time behind bars, losing time from work, and paying the hefty fines that go along with being arrested for driving while intoxicated.
I want to discuss the higher rate that you will have to start paying for your vehicle insurance because you are now considered high risk for a policy. This is the DWI punishment that will stay with your for years so you need to start working on it now. You may or may not be dropped by your current insurance carrier, but your rates will go up significantly. You have no time to waste when looking for a better insurance rate. It will be harder for you to obtain insurance if your insurance provider does drop you and you have a lapse in insurance.
With all the other fines that you will be paying you need to cut costs where you can. Finding a cheaper auto insurance is one area that you can search around for a better rate. At whatever rate that you are able to secure, you do need to maintain a valid insurance policy on your vehicle.
You don’t want to an added fine on top of your DWI punishment. Don’t just take your current carriers word that they have the best rate that you can find. Do some research online and shop for the best rate, this is a competitive market and you may save yourself a lot of money by switching carriers.
