The answer is clearly – NO

The Bankruptcy Court protects individuals who were injured by those driving and were intoxicated.

11 U.S.C. 523 (a) (9) does not allow any debts which were the result of driving while intoxicated to be discharged in bankruptcy.

Driving while drunk can ruin your chances of ever living a financially successful life.

Your insurance company will not pay for your damages to your car when you are drunk.

Don’t even think to try to file for bankruptcy and want to try to discharge a debt as a result of your drunk driving.

Bankruptcy was set up to give individuals a fresh start not for those individuals who drink and drive and cause injuries to others.
