A few weeks ago, I discussed 3 helpful tips about drunk driving.  I explained the acceptable levels of blood alcohol content (BAC), the criminal charges for driving under the influence, and things to remember when you are arrested for drunk driving.  Today, I want to expand on that blog and add 3 more things you need to know about drunk driving charges.

Here are a few things those who have been charged with driving under the influence should keep in mind.

1. Pay your fines on time:

Being charged with a DUI will likely cost you thousands of dollars.  You must pay these fines or else a warrant for your arrest will be issued.  Luckily, some courts are willing to place you on monthly payment options.  However, if you are late in making these payments, a warrant for your arrest will be issued and you will face some dreaded jail time.

2. Do not drink and drive again:

If you get caught drinking and driving a second or third time (a repeat offender), you will face harsher penalties.  You will have to pay higher fines, you will lose your license for a longer period of time, and your insurance costs will skyrocket.  You may also have to face some jail time.

3. Speak to a Drunk Driving Attorney:
