A driver who gets hit with a DUI arrest can expect the conse- quences to be costly. The cost of a DUI could add up to approxi- mately $ l 0,000; howevex, beyond the fines of a DUI, the potential cost is much higher because you are risking your life or the lives of others. A first DUI offense with a blood alcohol content below 0.16 earns a $500 fine, a 91-day license suspension (which will add trans- portation costs), and $100 dri- ver's license reinstatement fee. The driver is responsible for the cost of their vehicle towing and im- pound and a $300 mandatory al- cohol evaluation. Attorney and court fees will cost at least $2,500. A DUI kicks in high-risk auto in- surance premiums, which snow- ball to $6,600 over the minfmum three years. "The cost ofa DUI can have a lasting negative impact in many ways, including your credit, lifestyle, and earning power," says North Dakota's Traffic Safety Re- source Prosecutor, Aaron Birst.

At a recent session of District Court in Grafion, four defendants from Pisek pleaded guilty to un- lawful sale of liquor [there was statewide prohibition].

The Bank of Park River has in- stalled a new Burroughs Posting Ma- chine, at a cost of $715 (!) tt oper- ates like an adding machine, the Gazette notes, "the loose-leaf ledger sheets with each man's account are slipped into the machine." All de- posits are added, and checks are sub- tracted, and the end-of-the day bal- ance is automatically calculated and printed` If there is an overdraft, the machine indicates it in red ink. [Author's note: this sounds very much like the posting machine that I, as a high school student, and vet- eran employees like Alice Jorgenson and Joan Fail, used at the First State Bank.] According to the Walsh County Sheriff's De- partment the fire was contained in the north bedroom of Apartment A-3&4, but there was smoke damage throughout the entire complex. "It was pretty cool because the fire depart- ment said if he wouldn't have noticed it so quickly then there would have been a lot more damage," Amanda said of her son's actions. Both boys were presented with shirts at the Park River Volunteer Fire Department's June 15 meeting that said it all: "I reported a fire and saved someone's life." Amanda said that she hopes that others see the good work that these two boys did and know that they can be heroes in their hometowns as well.

Penal- ties also go up for higher blood al- cohol levels. If there is injury or property damage involved, the costs could continue to climb. But the ultimate cost would be a fatality due to your decision to drink and drive." The month of June has the second-highest average number of fatalities over the last ten years; only October has had more fatal- ities. "The risk just isn't worth it. Do yourself and everybody else a fa- vor: don't drive hnpaired. When in doubt, call a cab or find other trans- portation," Birst advises. Law enfolxement patrols will be on alert during Jtme for drivers un, der the influence of alcohol, in- toxicants, narcotics or other drugs. The added patrols are expected to help prevent DUIs, as well as getting impaired drivers off the roads. In 2014, nearly 45 percent of all naotor vehicle fatal crashes were al- cohol-related.
