In terms of a DUI, you could be looking at thousands of dollars in fines and fees. You may have to attend alcohol and drug safety action programs, which is called ADSAP in South Carolina.

Insurance Rates, License Suspension and Permanent Record

You will also have to get SR22 Insurance, the cost of which can add $4,000.00 per year on top of your premium for three years. You may also lose your license for a year and have a permanent criminal record.

A DUI can affect you like no other charge. It can affect you when you lose your right to drive and also your livelihood. The biggest misconception is that it’s simple charge and that it can just go away. It’s not simple. It’s complex. It’s major surgery in terms of cases.
