New Year’s Eve DUI south of Atlanta? Immediately Contact an Experienced DUI Attorney

Every holiday season the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTS) teams up with State and local law enforcement in an effort to keep drunk drivers off the streets through the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over holiday enforcement crackdown. This year the increase in patrols runs from December 16 to January 2. During this highly visible enforcement period, law enforcement agencies will be cracking down on impaired driving.

Nationwide, more than 10,000 police departments and law enforcement agencies are in full force. They even launched a new ad campaign that is showing before screenings of one of the most anticipated new films of the year, ?Star Wars: The Force Awakens.?
Encountering a police roadblock or being pulled over can be extremely stressful. And in Georgia, even sober drivers can be arrested for a DUI. This is referred to as a ?Less Safe Driver? and can happen when someone only appears to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

If you are arrested for DUI under any circumstance, you need to contact an experienced DUI attorney immediately to ensure the best possible outcome. The ?10-day rule? in Georgia means the clock starts ticking at the time of arrest. An experienced DUI attorney will get to work on helping you retain your driving privileges pending the outcome of the criminal charges surrounding your DUI. Outcomes vary depending on your personal circumstances, such as prior criminal history or your age.
