Understanding Georgia's DUI Law

Driving under the influence, whether by drugs or alcohol, poses a serious risk to both the driver and others on the road. In Georgia, the law strictly prohibits driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) over .08 or with any controlled substance. Even having traces of marijuana in your blood or urine is considered illegal.

Georgia also enforces an open container law, making it unlawful to possess any open alcoholic container in the vehicle's passenger area. For repeat offenses or specific circumstances like attempting to evade an officer or causing severe injury or death, a misdemeanor DUI charge could escalate to a felony, especially if it's the driver's fourth DUI conviction within a decade.

Every DUI conviction mandates completion of a DUI drug or alcohol risk reduction program along with a clinical evaluation. Penalties include fines, community service, jail time, and license suspension.

Driving under the influence leads to dire consequences. It's crucial to plan for a designated driver to ensure safe travels. If you've been involved in a DUI-related accident and suffered injuries, seeking counsel from an experienced personal injury attorney is vital.
