I thought having a few drinks in over 4 hours I would be fine driving but I was wrong. Will I be able to get a hardship license to drive to work? Also, what other fines will I be receiving?

Chances are good you'll receive a hardship license. As far as fines..not sure exactly but you will be paying out the as s! Not to mention you're insurance.
Now, my question for you. Everyone's definition of, "a few drinks", differs. What is yours?

It was 2 drinks but I had not ate anything so I believe that had something to do with it. I know I was in the wrong but have always heard you can drink 2 drinks without being over the limit. I was so upset and scared I failed the walking test. I really am not one to drive even after having one drink. I am a hard worker and just need to keep my job. I don't blame people that look down on me. I have learned my lesson and will never do it again.

OMG! This person is asking for advice...shut up about the drinking and driving. Everyone does it, some of us are lucky enough not to get caught. If you don't have positive advice, then stay off the forum and quit being a hen!

My first dui got me a little jail time (aggravated mandatory jail time)....your fines about 800-900). You can go to the KAPS office and do community service. You will also pay 25 bucks a DUI class...which you will get atleast 7 of those. You will lose your license for 90 days, but you can get the hardship after 30 days, which is like 40 bucks I think. DUI's don't mean your a bad person, its all this town can survive off of to make money for the city. Just don't be a repeat offender :-)

The KAPS office makes it equivalent to a job that pays 10.00 an hour...so for example if your fine is 805, you will get 80 hours. If your fine is 850, you will get 85 hours. I suggest doing that. Total pay is 35 dollars plus 10 a month until you finish. I finished my 80 in one month so i only paid 35 bucks. so 35 bucks, plus 7 dui classes at 25 a piece, plus the 40 for hardship. You're looking at a total of 250 instead of 1200 if you work the fine off. Now jail time is different. Its a 25 dollar booking fee, plus 20 each day your in there. That is where my money went because I got like 10 days total.

You can break the jail time up (if you even have to do any days). You can do it at your own pace if you pay up front. I say do 2 days at a time in a week to knock it out

If you're drinking n driving. And you get hit and the other driver dies, you get charged with murder. Yep. For real. The attorney that takes your case? Wants 50,000. Up front. so dont drink and drive.
