Understanding Your DUI Charges
It takes very little alcohol for some drivers to be legally drunk. In Georgia, the state uses the national standard and prohibits any driver from operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 percent or above (.04 percent for commercial drivers).
Based on your weight, amount of body fat and the amount of time elapsed between drinks, you could test as legally drunk after a couple of quick drinks. In addition to having strict DUI laws, Georgia also enforces an open container law that prohibits the transportation of any open container containing any amount of alcohol.
