In today's post, I will outline the different examples of DUI related offenses, and how these offenses can result in more serious charges, just like the story above.
DUI in Georgia and the Routine Traffic Stop
Routine traffic stops occur from If you have been arrested and charged with DUI, you probably were given other traffic offenses or other related charges. For example, generally before being charged with a DUI, a driver has been pulled over for some other offense such as:
- Failure to Maintain Lane
- Texting While Driving
- Illegal Passing
- Following Too Closely
- Hit and Run
- Headlight Requirements
- Racing, etc.
These are just a few examples of routine traffic stops. Unless stopped at a Georgia DUI Roadblock, then a driver accused of DUI is also facing other traffic violations.
