WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ARE PULLED OVER FOR A DUI IN GEORGIA?

In Georgia getting pulled over for DUI can have serious consequences. You will be asked to provide a breath sample and perform field sobriety test on the side on the road. If you refuse the officer must read you the implied consent law and if you still refuse, the officer will need to obtain a warrant to obtain a blood sample which would usually occur at the jail, police station, or hospital. You will be booked and during this time, you will be fingerprinted, photographed, and asked to provide a breath or blood sample to determine your blood alcohol content (BAC). If your BAC is above the legal limit of 0.08%, you will face additional charges and penalties. These can include fines, community service, probation, and even jail time. You may also be required to attend a DUI school and have an ignition interlock device installed in your vehicle.
