DUI arrests in Georgia spike during the holiday week

The winter season is not the best time to be outside. Even in Georgia, often a balmy state with plenty to do outdoors, people often spend more time alone. Drinking and alcoholism can also rise in the winter months, and the holiday season can be a warning against drinking and driving.

Troopers with the Georgia State Patrol stepped up their traffic control efforts in December 2018, stopping hundreds of drivers to check for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Posts in Milledgeville and Madison yielded 29 arrests on suspicion of DUI just in the final week of the month.

New Year's Day, also an infamous time for boozy parties, proved dangerous on the roads of the Peach State as well. More than a dozen drivers were taken into custody on suspicion of drunk or drugged driving in less than five hours over the night before New Year's Day in Baldwin County.

The road check also turned up other driving violations, including failure to use seat belts and the illegal use of open containers of alcohol. One person wanted on felony charges attempted to evade the troopers but was arrested and also charged with driving without a valid license.

People charged with driving violations related to alcohol use are always entitled to an aggressive defense based on factual or procedural challenges to police stops, searches and tests. Anyone charged with driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol should consider consulting an attorney on the next steps, including court dates and responses to charges. No one should have to face the justice system alone.
