Consequences in Georgia for driving over the limit

Many of us depend on our car to get us everywhere. So sometimes after a drink or two, or the morning after a night of heavy drinking, we can be tempted to get in the driver's seat, believing that we are competent and that we are safe. This is not only illegal, but can be a fatal mistake to make.

Car accident conviction: Involuntary manslaughter

Being involved in an accident where a person is killed is everyone's worst nightmare. No one ever wants their actions to have potentially resulted in the death of a person. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, you may be at risk of being accused of involuntary manslaughter. This is particularly true if there is proof that you acted negligently or if you were found to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the crash.

Underage DUI and zero tolerance laws

If you are caught drunk driving and are under the age of 21, there is a different set of laws that will apply to you as opposed to drunk drivers over the age of 21. This is in part because you have broken two laws in combination -- drunk driving and underage drinking.
