PostSubject: What are the Most Common Drunk Driving Punishments?   Tue Nov 17, 2015 5:59 pm

The most common drunk driving punishments include fines, incarceration, community service, counseling, ignition interlocks, suspension of a driverís license, and vehicle forfeiture. Upon conviction, a judge, depending on the jurisdiction, may impose one or a combination of these penalties. The punishments imposed for a drunk driving first offense are usually less severe than penalties for subsequent convictions. The degree of intoxication or prior drunk driving convictions may increase the severity of drunk driving punishments.

Fines are the most typical of drunk driving punishments. Fine amounts vary depending on the jurisdiction. Judges often impose monetary penalties on first time offenders. The fines increase dramatically for subsequent offenses. Some jurisdictions allow persons of low income to perform community service instead of paying a fine. Courts may also allow payment in monthly installments.
