What is the Cost of a Ride Home Vs the Cost of a DUI?

  • Many people find themselves driving drunk or "buzzed" because they don't want to pay for a ride home and deal with the hassle of getting their car the next day. A new infographic created by Connecticut lawyer Erin Field looks at exactly how much that choice to drive home instead of calling a ride share service can cost you. It compares the average cost of a Lyft or Uber ride with the average cost of a DUI. Many people know they shouldn't drink and drive because they could possibly get into a crash, but many people don't think about the consequences of a DUI.
