What does a DUI Cost in Arizona?

It happens.  People get DUIs everyday.  And if this has happened to you, you’re probably wondering what it’s going to cost you.  Unfortunately, more than you think. Ever hear of an Ignition Interlock Device?   Didn’t think so. And chances are you may not be aware of some of the other costs that go along with cleaning up a DUI charge in Arizona, such as associated legal fees, DUI fines, extra insurance costs, DUI classes, and more.

On average, these costs run into thousands of dollars.  And this doesn’t include if you lose your job because of a DUI charge, or if you’re unable to secure employment because a DUI charge in Arizona goes on your permanent record.  That’s right.  Your permanent record.  That means a DUI charge can follow you around for the rest of your life whenever a background check is required.

What is an Ignition Interlock Device?

If you’re lucky enough, It is possible the judge could order that you pay for the installation of an ignition interlock device so you can still drive. The device costs about $2,000 to install and is wired into your vehicle’s ignition system to work like a Breathalyzer test.  You have to blow into it before you can drive. If alcohol is detected on your breath, the vehicle won’t start.  You may even have to pay a monthly fee for use of this device.

What About My Car Insurance?

When you’ve been convicted of a DUI in Arizona, your car insurance premium will go up. How high depends on the car insurance company, but you can certainly count on it going up if you’re not dropped altogether because a DUI conviction means you’re at a higher risk of being in or causing an accident.  You may not be able to afford the high insurance prices which could prevent you from driving.

While the financial and long-term repercussions of a DUI seem hefty, the fact is that driving under the influence is dangerous and against the law.  The best way to get through this time is to get your case evaluated by a DUI lawyer in Arizona.  If you are facing DUI charges and have questions about what it will cost you as well as how to minimize the damage done, we can help.

“I was totally impressed and grateful for the expertise and successful case Arja handled for me. She answered my calls immediately and saved me a lot of professional and personal heartache. Arja did a great job refuting the State’s evidence and convinced the Prosecutor that my chewing tobacco was a major issue in the case that the officer did not check.”
