We encourage the use of intervention techniques such as keeping the motorcyclist present, finding a safe place to store the motorcycle and/or finding alternative transportation for the rider. Without intervention, impaired riders face many consequences – #1 being a DWI arrest.
Here are some costs to consider associated with a DWI arrest:
Insurance possibly $500 to $1,000 increase in annual premiums
Lawyer fees – for court representation
Lost work time – time spent in jail, court or alcohol-education programs
Public transportation costs – (while your license is suspended)
Psychological cost – being tagged a drunk driver.
If you were involved in an accident – health costs if you were injured, more lost wages if you were hospitalized, repair costs to the motorcycle, etc.
