Excerpt from What You Should Know About Georgia DUI Laws.
These are the laws that affect Georgia DUI
Alcohol has been around for a long time. Cars have been around since the turn of the 20th century. For the past one hundred years or so, the American legal system has grappled with the problem of intoxicated drivers. As cars have become bigger and faster, and as people drive many more miles annually, the dangers associated with “drunk driving” have increased. Political trends cause frequent changes in traffic laws, rises in the conviction rate for DUI, the severity of punishments, and the intensity of enforcement efforts.
The laws governing DUI in Georgia are found in the Constitution of the United States, the Constitution of the State of Georgia, the Georgia Code (O.C.G.A.), the Georgia Administrative Code, and appellate decisions on DUI and criminal procedure by the Georgia Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court of Georgia. No lawyer should ever defend a DUI case without being familiar with all of the laws governing DUI.
Remember your civics class and the three branches of government? Well, here are those branches and how they pertain to DUI laws:
LEGISLATIVE – laws
EXECUTIVE – administrative rules and regulations as published under the Administrative Procedure Act
JUDICIAL – decisions from the courts
