Jan. 24, 2014 - PRLog -- Justin Bieber's recent arrest for drunken driving may not cost him much specifically for the DUI. But, there are likely to be far more wide ranging ramifications for Bieber in terms of reputational risks, endorsement deals & damage to his fan base. Bieber may recover with the help of a wide ranging machinery - his manager, agents, the music industry etc- & get back on top.

However, for millions of families faced with a teenager getting a DUI, the impact on the family could be devastating. Besides, the stress & tension of having a teenager getting a DUI, discussions with lawyers, attendance at court & other issues, the economic & financial cost of a DUI is real & could dramatically impact a family’s finance.

uAutoInsurance ( http://www.uautoinsurance.com ), a research & data analytics firm focused on the Auto Insurance sector, just released a timely report on the cost of a teenage DUI on insurance rates. The research found that the post DUI costs on a teenager’s insurance could be as much as 55% of an adult’s insurance. The specifics of the increase vary from state to state & your coverage choices but states such as West Virginia, Texas & Oklahoma have the highest increases. The brief overview of the report is given here:


20% of drivers between the ages of 16 to 20 that were in in fatal car crashes were alcohol impaired & had a Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) level of more than .08 according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Teenage Drunk Driving continues to be an issue that national organizations such as Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) continue to fight against. Advocacy groups & the larger media can emphasize the larger financial impact on the family to get the message through to Teenagers.
