Have you ever wondered what a DUI violation will do to your life both in the close future and in the distant future? One thing that most people don’t realize is a DUI is a felony and because of that it will not come off your record even after a specified number of years. Just understand that a DUI does not come off your record after 7 years, it’ll stay on there for life just because it will go down as one strike on the three strikes rule. The reason why a felony is bad is because a DUI will count as part of the three strike rule and if you are not careful you could be on the wrong side of the law in a hurry.

A reason why getting a DUI violation will harm your life is because you’ll have a more difficult time getting positions of power in regards to employment. For lots of people they think that all they have to do is disclose what happened years back but the problem is when an individual receives a DUI they’re three times more likely to get one again and that’s why employers are cautious about who they hire in regards to DUI’s and other felony’s. Although it won’t be out of the question to get employment it will hurt you and if you were ever up against a person with a clean background you could almost guarantee that they will be hired as opposed to you just because of what happened.

Another thing that’ll hurt you is the fact that your car insurance rates will increase. This is not as big of a deal to someone that received a DUI violation 5 or 10 years back but for somebody that received one recently it’ll be a major blow to their confidence and their wallet. What you most likely do not understand is that there are certain insurance policies for people who have received a DUI and they are not things you want to be paying for. The reason why you don’t want a special insurance policy is because they cost much more and they do not cover as much in regards to damages to you or another driver, only the automobile.

The last thing you have to understand about a DUI violation is that once you receive one you have to first get yourself represented by a decent lawyer. This is where lots of individuals make the mistake of thinking they will be able to handle the situation on their own and although you probably could, the issue will be when you’re in front of the judge and he asks you if you have anything to say.
