DUI Charges in Mountain Park
Many people mistakenly believe that you can only be charged with a DUI in Mountain Park GA if your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was over the legal limit. While this is one way you can be charged with DUI, there are numerous others. They include:
DUI Less Safe Alcohol
A driver can be guilty of a DUI less safe when they drive a vehicle under the influence of alcohol to the extent that the consumption makes it less safe for them to operate a motor vehicle. Furthermore, a person can be charged with DUI less safe if their BAC is less than .08.
DUI Per Se Alcohol
A person commits DUI per se when they operate a vehicle with a BAC over .08 or more, within three hours of driving. It is also DUI per se when someone under 21 years of age operates a vehicle with a BAC of .02 or more. For a commercial driver, the BAC is .04.
DUI Less Safe Drugs
DUI less safe for drugs means that a driver was under the influence of a drug to the extent that it was less safe for them to drive. Drugs include both prescription drugs and illegal drugs. A person convicted of DUI drugs will be unable to get a permit to drive and will suffer a hard suspension of their license. DUI drug charges can be difficult to understand. That is why it is critical to hire a Mountain Park Georgia DUI Attorney if you are facing these charges.
DUI for Glue, Aerosols, or Toxic Vapors
A person can be charged with DUI while under the influence of glue, aerosols, or toxic vapors. This type is not as common but still comes with severe consequences. Similarly to DUI drugs, a conviction will include a hard suspension of their driver's license.
DUI for Marijuana or a Controlled Substance
Even though there is a statute for DUI drugs, Georgia has a separate law when the drug is marijuana or another controlled substance. The prosecution has the burden of proving that the marijuana or controlled substance caused you to be an unsafe driver.
DUI for a Combination of Two or More Drugs
A driver can be charged with DUI when they are under the influence of a combination of drugs and alcohol. The drug could be marijuana, a controlled substance, glue, toxic vapors, aerosols, or a prescription drug. Even if the driver's BAC is under .08, evidence of drugs in their system will be sufficient for a Mountain Park GA DUI charge.
