We have some of, if not THE harshest DUI laws in the country here:
3+ days jail first offence (no if's and's or butts) $300
Vehicle impounded (you have to pay like $600 to get it back)
Ignition interlock for 12 months (that can run you $1,300+)
loss of vehicle for 30 days
SR-22 Insurance for 5 years ($2,000 a year)
There are also court fees and lawyer fees (if you hired one). All in all a conservative estimate is that a first time DUI will run you about $25,000.
