DUI

Georgia: Not the Place to Drink and Drive

For many of us in the Peach State, fall means hanging out under Friday night lights and enjoying ourselves at Saturday afternoon tailgates for the next few months. Enjoying football season with friends and family is what it's all about, right? How 'bout them Dawgs!

You may have a drink before the game, holler for a cold beer or two to wash down a hot dog at the game, and next thing you know you're not sure what your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) levels are. Is it safe to drive home? That doesn't seem to be an issue for everyone else leaving the game. In fact, you know there are people who seemed to have consumed more libations than you have, and they're driving. Do you just go with it or pause and make a good decision?

Seeing how seriously the state of Georgia takes DUI charges could help you make an informed decision before getting behind the wheel after having had something to drink.
