Savannah DUI Per Se Lawyers
What is Georgia’s DUI Per Se Law?
Georgia’s DUI laws stand to protect its roadways by prohibiting driving after overconsumption of alcohol. DUI laws condemn drunk drivers who impose potential threats to others on the road. Georgia’s DUI per se law states that if your alcohol concentration is 0.08 grams or more within 3 hours after driving, it is presumed the driver is too impaired to safety drive.

DUI Per Se Defenses
To be found guilty of a DUI per se charge, the arresting officer needs to provide reputable evidence that the driver’s BAC was above .08% within three hours of operating the vehicle. They must also show that the BAC is the result of drinking before the driver operated the vehicle if the test was done after the person drove rather than at the time they were pulled over.
Even if the officer shows that they recorded a BAC reading at or above .08%, The Lerch Law Firm can apply specific defenses to fight your per se charge. If the officer failed to inform you of Georgia’s implied consent law and your right to refuse a test or have it administered a different way, there are grounds to question the charge.
DUI per se charges are serious, but they are not defenseless. The Lerch Law Firm’s attorneys offer the counsel, professional experience, and knowledge necessary to fight any DUI per se charge in Savannah.
