Under the best of circumstances driving Georgia's Interstates can have its dangers. When a driver gets behind the wheel after drinking, it only increases the hazards to others on the road. The possibility of a fatal accident occurring when a drunk driver is behind the wheel of a motor vehicle escalates exponentially.
As many people may be aware, there are no shortages in news stories about people hurt or killed due to drunk drivers. Virtually all Georgia residents already know that drinking and driving can often cause a fatal accident when a person with a blood alcohol content of .08 percent or more gets behind the wheel of any vehicle. A recent crash may demonstrate that point all too clearly.
