What is a DUI in Georgia?
Drugs often come with side effects, such as drowsiness, dizziness, slow reaction time, decreased coordination, and impaired judgment of time and distance. When these effects are combined with driving, it often results in reckless driving and terrible accidents.
In Georgia, it is illegal to operate a vehicle while under the influence of drugs. If there is evidence that an individual was impaired by drugs while driving, he or she can be charged with DUI. This is true no matter the type of drug, including illegal drugs, prescription drugs, and over-the-counter drugs.
To convict someone of a DUI-drug crime, it is not necessary for the state to prove that a defendant had a particular level of drugs in his or her system. They must simply demonstrate that the individual was incapable of driving safely.
The state can show impairment by:
- A state-administered chemical test
- A field sobriety test
- The presence of drugs in a defendant’s vehicle
- An admission of drug use
- Evidence of erratic driving
- Slurred or frantic speech
What Are the Penalties for a DUI in Georgia?
The penalties for driving under the influence of drugs are the same as alcohol-based DUI charges. These include fines, imprisonment, probation, license suspension, ignition interlock devices, and DUI classes. The level of punishment is usually increased for repeat offenders. For instance, fines will be higher and jail time and license suspension will be longer for second and third offenders.
