A: Generally speaking, in GA there are two types of DUI charges. A per se DUI is a a DUI charge in which a blood, breath or urine test is given and the test result is greater than the legal limit which is. 08.

A DUI less safe is a DUI charge in which the police officer is essentially alleging that you were a less safe driver than the normal driver due to alcohol or drugs (can be prescription drugs or illegal drugs). Legally, the police officer does not have to test you for drugs or show actual unsafe or bad driving. He may be presuming you were under the influence of alcohol or drugs making you a less safe driver based on his investigation.

I have been defending GA DUI cases for over 20 years and can definitely help you with your defense.
