Insurance rate increases are the highest costs associated with DUI/DWI. Major carriers who do keep drunk drivers on their policies usually drop or assign them to ‘high risk’ carriers and raise their rates dramatically, sometimes as much as 400%. If you own more than one car than costs go up even more.
This is why it is important to shop around and find out what other standard and non standard insurance carriers will charge you for an SR-22.
