Understanding DUI Less Safe

Posted by ​​Jacques Alpacino Barker | Feb 10, 2021








DUI Less Safe

O.C.G.A. § 40-6-391(a)(2) prohibits driving “under the influence of any drug to the extent that it is less safe for the person to drive.” This statute allows law enforcement the ability to determine that any amount of a contraband substance in your system can constitute DUI. The State only needs to prove that the drug rendered the driver incapable of driving safely – whether the substance was illegal, over-the-counter, prescribed or a combination of a drug and alcohol in the driver's system.
