DUI Insurance

The amount you pay for car insurance depends, in part, on what your insurer deems your risk of being in an accident. And drunk driving is incredibly risky and dangerous. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration tells us that in 2013 alone, drunk driving cost more than 10,000 people their lives. As a result of this the insurance companies now associate you as a higher risk driver.

Alcohol (and other intoxicants) affects the central nervous system and impairs driving ability, slowing reaction times and concentration while affecting our ability to monitor speed — a dangerous cocktail, if you ask us. Research shows that, because of these effects, those with .09 blood alcohol concentration (BAC) or greater are 11 times more likely to be involved in a fatal crash than completely sober drivers.

Every state (and D.C.) makes it illegal to drive with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 percent or higher. And the penalties for a DUI are stiff. State laws vary, but most states, at the very least, levy a fine and suspend or revoke driving privileges.
Direct impact of a DUI on a car insurance premium

The amount will vary depending on individual circumstances — of course — but for a typical one-car/one-driver policy, the average premium could increase by a few hundred dollars.

Find out what a typical DUI conviction may cost, all things considered.
after a conviction: obtaining an SR-22, an FR-44, or an FR-19 form

For those who are caught and convicted of DUI’s, certain forms may be required to certify insurance coverage.

If you haven’t heard of an SR-22 you probably don’t need one. After a DUI or another major conviction, the state may request that you file a proof of financial responsibility form before driving again. The form proves that you carry the state-mandated amount of car insurance coverage .

Your car insurer will file these forms on your behalf for a fee of around $25. The SR-22 is the most common version, though there are others. W
What’s the difference between a DUI and a DWI?

In most cases, driving under the influence (DUI) and driving while intoxicated (DWI) are interchangeable. Some states use DUI while others favor DWI. A handful of states even use other terms such as OUI (operating under the influence).

A few jurisdictions issue both DWI’s and DUI’s. In these states, DWI usually refers to alcohol impairment while a DUI charge may be issued to those impaired through some other means, such as illegal or prescription drugs.
