New legal requirements affect Georgia drunk driving cases

No one in Georgia thinks it is a good idea to drink and drive. Any more than a minute amount of beer, wine or liquor can cause a lack of ability to drive safely, and thousands of people are killed in the United States every year by drunk driving incidents on the road. But changes in the laws that allow police and sheriffs to investigate drunk driving cases in Georgia mean that suspects should be aware of them.

There are a few ways that a night of drinking could change your life, and few of them are good. An argument with a loved one could start a rift, or a drunken scuffle can lead to serious injuries. One of the worst messes that happens when a person is intoxicated is that the person may not even remember them.

One of America's most treasured rights is the assumption of innocence until guilt is proven. This matters beyond retaining freedom and privileges that are also guaranteed by law. Convictions for crimes can follow people for the rest of their lives, making professional opportunities harder to find and goals harder to attain.

DUI trial begins with defense challenges

It's not always easy to drive in Georgia. Speed can be a factor, as it often seems everyone wants to be a stock car racer on the interstate highways. Distracted driving -- like paying attention to a cellphone while behind the wheel -- is also dangerous. Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is another issue that can cause problems from other drivers as well as the driver under the influence.

Habitual violators in Georgia face higher penalties

Driving under the influence of alcohol is never a good idea. Law enforcement agencies often remind us that drinking with any sort of impairment is some form of DUI. Drivers in Georgia may find themselves facing charges if they consent to a blood alcohol content (BAC) test and the result is .08 or higher.

It's more likely that someone will drive to a bar or liquor store than most other ways to get there. This can be a problem if people try to drive back. Georgia's prosecutors and police have generally been hard-nosed about the enforcement of laws against driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol. The law, however, is changing.

Drunk driving charges reduced against former police officer

Driving in Georgia is generally a safe venture, although some places are more dangerous than others. Several roads near Atlanta and other major urban centers have a higher incidence of car accidents in everyday circumstances. But one circumstance that could appear anywhere is a driver under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

New laws affect searches of drunk driving suspects in Georgia

Defendants in criminal proceedings are presumed innocent until found guilty through legal means. This principle is the underpinning ethic of United States law as well as state legislation in Atlanta. A new interpretation of this principle is bringing changes to Georgia's laws on driving under the influence of alcohol.

No one gets into a car thinking of anything else other than getting where they are going, and no one starts a car journey thinking it may end in disaster. When people drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol, though, they are asking for that sort of trouble.

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.
