If you have been arrested for a DUI in GA, you know that this is a very serious ordeal. Georgia DUI laws are very harsh and a person could spend time in jail, even after a first arrest!
Given the nature of GA DUI laws, it is interesting to find out that the state will soon have an election to remove the ban of the sale of alcohol on Sundays.
If you’re not from Georgia, you may be surprised to learn that you cannot buy alcohol on Sundays. (Pray tell, what if you need to go on an extra beer run on Super Bowl Sunday?) However, this law has been around for a very long time.
If Georgia were to pass this law, the sale of alcohol on Sundays could help the state financially. Business would improve and sales and tax revenues would increase.
However, even in these times, the removal of this ban is still pretty controversial. There are 14 states that still have a ban on alcohol sales on a Sunday.
Regardless of the citizens’ ideologies about the issue, if GA were to allow the sale of alcohol on Sundays, how will this affect the DUI rate in the state? Would people be more inclined to get behind the wheel while intoxicated? Would Georgia DUI laws become harsher if the ban is lifted?
Obviously, these questions will be answered in time, but if you’re dealing with a DUI in Georgia right now, you must find help immediately.
