A DUI is a costly experience and can even land you in jail. The process will take up your personal time and may require you to take off work to attend court or an administrative hearing to keep your license. These consequences usually lead first time offenders to be careful the next time around, and avoid repeat offenses. Unfortunately this is not always the case and people from all walks of life and all age groups are routinely charged with DUI. If you want to avoid the penalties associated with DUI cases it is helpful to know a few ways to avoid a DUI altogether.
