Common DUI Related Traffic Violations in Eton

In most of our cases, the DUI arrest starts with a basic traffic violation. A police officer must have a reason for conducting a DUI investigation, and it usually starts with the driver failing to adhere to traffic laws. Some of the most common traffic offenses committed with a DUI include:

Failure to Maintain Lane

Failure to maintain lane is the most common reason a person is stopped and questioned about drinking and driving. O.C.G.A. § 40-6-48 states that whenever any roadway has been divided into two or more clearly marked lanes for traffic.. a vehicle shall be driven as nearly as practicable entirely within a single lane and shall not be moved from such lane until the driver has first ascertained that such movement can be made with safety.

There are many defenses to the underlying charge of failure to maintain lane. Because the law is vague as to what constitutes safety, your Eton DUI Lawyer can argue that you lawfully maintained your lane.

Speeding

Speeding is one of the most frequently charged traffic offenses in Georgia. Even though it is a minor charge, it could lead to a more serious crime, such as DUI. We have Georgia’s Best DUI Lawyers that have extensive experience negotiating speeding tickets down and keeping it off a driver's record. In regards to a DUI case, if the solicitor is unable to prove that you were speeding, then there can be no basis for the traffic stop that resulted in the DUI arrest.

Failure to Adhere to Headlight Requirements

While it may sound trivial, a headlight violation can be the basis of the beginning of a DUI investigation. O.C.G.A. § 40-8-20 outlines that Georgia drivers must display their headlights from 30 minutes after sunset to thirty minutes before sunrise, while raining, or any other time when there is not sufficient visibility. If you were pulled over for violating Georgia's headlight rules and were subsequently charged with DUI, you need a DUI attorney in Eton

Following Too Closely

According to O.C.G.A. § 40-6-49, the driver of a motor vehicle shall not follow another vehicle more closely than is reasonable and prudent. Many vehicle accidents result from a driver following too closely and then proceed to be the basis for a DUI charge. The stakes are high if you have been charged with a DUI and following too closely. These cases are challenging to defend and require the attention of our experienced Eton DUI lawyers.
