$109,000 Fine for Drunk Driving

Comments (0)

Everyone knows that if you are convicted of a DUI / DWI offense in Virginia it will cost you thousands of dollars - but $109,000? 

In Virginia, the maximum fine amount for DUI / DWI offenses is $2,500 and it doesn't matter whether the DUI / DWI offender is indigent or incredibly wealthy.  However, Norwegian courts have a different system in which they determine the amount of the fine based upon the offenders income and personal wealth.  It is this system that resulted in a DUI / DWI offender being fined the equivalent of $109.000 for drunk driving.  

So remember, as tough as Virginia DUI law is and as much as a conviction for a Virginia DUI / DWI will cost you, it could always be worse.
