3 Long-Term Effects of a DUI Conviction

Home / Criminal Defense / 3 Long-Term Effects of a DUI Conviction

Driving under the influence is a very serious crime, one that can even land you behind bars. Every day, people lose their lives due to driving under the influence or being involved in an accident due to drunk driving. At The Law Offices of Jason C. Pollack, P.C., a leading DUI defense lawyer in Camden County, we have proudly represented those who have been arrested and/or charged with a form of driving under the influence in New Jersey.

Despite the modern technology of ride-sharing apps like Uber and Lyft, driving under the influence is still a problem that needs to be addressed. Before you get behind the wheel after a night out, consider these long-lasting effects of a DUI conviction:

Empty Out Your Bank Account

As annoying as paying for a cab or getting an Uber can be, both of those are just a small percentage of what it costs in DUI fees. Between paying for a lawyer to help win your case and restoration fees, those charged with a DUI can end up paying thousands to have their driving freedoms restored.

Limited Mobility

We’ve all been invited to functions, parties and get-togethers at the last minute. While some of these parties can be an awesome time, the only way you’re able to get there is by hopping in your car at the last minute and meeting up with people with little time to spare. Those get-togethers can be a thing of the past once while your driving privileges are suspended.

On top of that, getting to work and other important commitments can become costly and inconvenient. The next time you’re unsure if you’re okay enough to drive, just imagine trying to get to work for a few months without a license.

Polish Up that Work Resumé

Like with most jobs, getting arrested/charged with a crime can be the end of your time at that employer. The chances of those charged losing their job are even higher if they need to use a motor vehicle each day to accomplish daily tasks.
