Police Agencies Predict Fewer Road-Related Deaths for Georgia

Atlanta, Ga. – Police agencies in Georgia have predicted that there will be less road-related accidents and deaths this year as a result of less travel due to the state of the pandemic.

Last year, in 2019, twelve deaths were reported over the Thanksgiving holiday in the Metro Atlanta Area. The Georgia State Patrol has reported that they will be patrolling interstates more heavily in an attempt to reduce traffic crashes and to keep roads safer this holiday.

As a Georgia DUI Attorney, I of course appreciate that officers will be keep thing the roads safer, but I would also like to remind my readers that even the slightest traffic violation can lead to a much more serious investigation for charges like DUI in Georgia.

In today's post, I will focus on the most common DUI Related Offenses so as to clarify what traffic violations lead officers to believe that a driver is driving under the influence.

Georgia DUI Related Offenses

DUI related offenses include a lot of different traffic offenses.  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:

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.
