A drunk driving charge may stop you from playing college sports

Last summer, one of the University of Georgia's (UGA) freshman defensive linemen was suspended from his role on the team after he was arrested for driving under the influence early one Sunday morning. He was later redshirted or forced to sit out for the remainder of his inaugural season on the team. What happened to this UGA player could easily happen to any other student slated to attend school here in Athens.

Does clothing color impact a pedestrian's risk of getting struck?

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) data shows that evenings between 6 p.m. and midnight are the most dangerous hours for individuals to take a walk. It's during these times that nearly 50% of pedestrians are struck by cars. There are some common reasons why incidents like these occur. There are also some things that you can do to ensure that you're not the next victim of such a crash.

What rights do pedestrians have in Georgia?

Virtually every city or state has laws on the books that describe what type of activities that a pedestrian can lawfully engage in without the risk of being ticketed. These rules and regulations aren't on the books to make people's lives inconvenient but to protect individuals from getting hurt or killed. Many of these laws have to do with pedestrians crossing the street, with or without crosswalks and signals.

Is it illegal for underage people to possess alcohol in Georgia?

If you're younger than the legal drinking age of 21 and you're spending your college years away from home here in Athens, then it's very likely that your parents warned you to steer clear of alcohol when they dropped you off at school your freshmen year. Your parents probably did this for a good reason. They're probably aware of some of Georgia's Underage Possession of Alcohol laws.
