Cab rides aren't cheap, but they're a bargain compared with the costs of a DWI. Fines of up to $2,000, up to six months in jail, suspension of your driver's license, having your car impounded, bail money and lost time off work (if you're not fired) add up to make that mistaken "I'm OK to drive" ruinously expensive. And that's before the $3,500 to $10,000 or more it can cost in attorney fees. Makes you put that $20 fare in perspective, doesn't it? Clip and save the following numbers or program them into your phone. They might just save your freedom -- or, you know, someone's life.
