In what ways can Georgia residents be charged with DUI?

With the holidays comes a variety of celebrations. From office parties to family gatherings, Georgians will be making merriment throughout the state. Safety should be a primary focus because if caught drinking and driving a DUI charge may ensue. This article will highlight the six ways a Georgia resident can be charged with DUI.

Two groups work to prevent drunk driving and underage drinking

For years, groups like Mothers Against Drunk Driving have been working to raise awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving. Although these groups have had a big impact, many believe that there is still much work to be done to protect the public from the dangers of drunk driving. Two Georgia groups are teaming up with the stated purpose of spreading awareness in their community.

Fatal drunk driving accident in Georgia

Drunk driving in the state of Georgia can carry serious penalties. One person is becoming familiar with these consequences, as recent reports indicate that a 27-year-old woman is charged with vehicular homicide, DUI-child endangerment and single counts of DUI speeding and reckless driving. Each charge of vehicular homicide carries a potential 15 year prison sentence.

Woman arrested for drunk driving, dancing behind the wheel

Dancing is a great way to spend an evening out on the town or to show-off your moves at a wedding. However, a car is generally not the best venue for such an activity. After running off the road and into a raised lane divider, a driver was stopped by the police recently in Georgia. The driver's response to the officer's questioning was that the erratic driving was due to dancing while driving.

Why Georgia legal representation matters in drunk driving defense

Televisions are bombarded with legal dramas. During the day, there is no shortage of judge shows where litigants represent themselves in front of the cameras. After viewing these shows, some Georgians may feel that they are well versed in the legal system. When faced with a legal issue of their own, some opt to represent themselves believing that he or she can do everything that a lawyer can do. This decision may lead to long-term negative effects that can damage their ability to find employment or obtain a place to live.

How Georgia DUI convictions can affect your job search

Whether you have just been charged or already received a conviction, the effect of a DUI on a Georgia job seeker's record can be devastating. Those who hold commercial driver's licenses can effectively be shut out of the job market when a DUI is present on their record. There are effective steps that can be taken to help an individual regain their ability to work.

DUI while riding a bike

When most people think of drunk driving charges, it is usually in reference to getting behind the wheel of a motor vehicle while impaired. However, a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) charge can result from the operation of a variety of different motorized and non-motorized vehicles. Recently, an Athens, Georgia resident was charged with a DUI after being suspected of riding a bike while impaired.

Drunk driving and allergies

There are several symptoms that accompany Georgian seasonal allergies. Watery eyes and a runny nose are among the things that make living with allergic rhinitis uncomfortable. A new study from the Netherlands proves that allergies cause more than just discomfort. Symptoms may also lead to impaired driving.

"Operation Zero Tolerance" kicks off to stop drunk driving

During the holidays, it is not uncommon for residents and tourists to find ways to celebrate. Whether it is at home, a barbeque, a party or at a public establishment, there are many concerns for those traveling to and from these celebrations. Because alcohol is often consumed, the dangers of being intoxicated behind the wheel are very real and present.
