Upon arrest, you'll need money to post bail. Otherwise,
you stay in jail pending trial. You will also pay for having
your car towed plus daily impoundment fees. When your case
goes to trial, you'll have to hire an attorney to defend
you in court.
If convicted, there
will be fines up to $2000. If sent to jail, you will be
out your wages, maybe even out of a job. Your insurance
premiums will rise and could possibly double. If you kill
or injure someone, you face expensive attorney fees, court
costs and civil damages that could even bankrupt you.
