DRINKING AND DRIVING NOT JUST DUMB BUT COSTLY

Officials say a conviction could be very costly for motorists nabbed for driving after too many drinks over the holidays. 

It’s estimated that the minimum cost of a conviction for driving at or over the legal blood-alcohol limit is 13 thousand, 475 dollars.

That includes such things as legal fees, fines, increased insurance costs, and an ignition interlock. 

It also means a loss of drivers licence, and that could mean loss of a job.

All of that adds up to a very expensive drink.

A MADD Canada survey found four of ten Canadians acknowledge they have driven a vehicle even though they believed that they were legally impaired.
