What if I Get Another DUI?

Penalties for a second DUI or DWI are much more severe than your first offense, especially if another person is injured as a result. Second DUI or DWI convictions usually result in the following:

  • Mandatory Jail Time
  • Suspension of Your License
  • Paying a Fine
  • Completing a Substance Abuse Education Program
  • Installing an Interlock Breath-Test Device in Your Automobile, which will prevent you from starting your vehicle if your blood alcohol content (BAC) level exceeds .08 percent.

Ways to Avoid a Second DUI

Because these penalties are so steep, National General Insurance really wants to help our drivers find alternatives to driving under the influence.

  • Ask a friend or family member to be your Designated Driver (DD).
  • Call a rideshare service anytime you drink.
  • Share a taxi with a friend to get home from a party.
  • If you cannot find a sober ride home from a party, ask your host if you can stay the night.

Remember, any amount that you pay to get home will be small in comparison to the penalties you would have to pay if you were caught drinking and driving. It's worth the investment.
