It is not a prank. It is the Knoxville Police Department’s attempt to educate people on the cost of drinking a driving. They contacted cab companies for the fare rate. They talked to defense lawyers for their prices to defend people charged with DUI (Driving Under the Influence). They contacted bail bond companies to get their price for a bond to get out of jail after being arrested but before being tried. The rest of the numbers come from Tennessee Code Annotated and the District Attorney’s office. What is painted on the hood of the car is the average cost of all those items. All this for a total cost of $18,815.
The average taxi cab fare: $2.00 a mile.
Which would you want to pay?
