Georgia has some of the stiffest penalties in the United States when it comes to drinking and driving. It seems like every week-end there is another road block on a South Georgia road, or the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety is launching another campaign to arrest as many people as possible.
The truth is, it has never been against the law to drink and drive in Georgia. It is only against the law to drink and drive to the extent you are a less safe driver. Did you know the State begins to try to suspend your license before you even go to criminal court? Despite everything you hear about being arrested for DUI, you still have legal rights. Don’t let these rights get trampled on by an overzealous law enforcement officer or district attorney. Call him for an appointment so he can review your case and talk about your options.
