Georgia residents who have been involved in a car accident know how frustrating it can be when the accident was not their fault. Drivers who get behind the wheel while they are intoxicated are a danger to the other people on the road and it is often innocent bystanders who pay the price for their recklessness.
Despite all the attention given to the dangers of driving while impaired, it still remains one of the most dangerous yet common driving offenses in Georgia. Most of that attention is focused on distracted driving and alcohol and drugs. This is with good reason, as the Governor’s Highway Safety Association reports that alcohol plays a role in almost 35% of all deadly crashes.
