Different BAC Limits in Georgia
Experienced lawyers are able to demonstrate how DUI tests can be highly
sensitive, as BAC readings can be skewed by many conditions. Something
as simple as low blood sugar or chewing gum could drastically change the
test results. In fact, tests have made mistakes because of a driver's
fatigue, medication, acid reflux, tobacco product use, dental work, breath
mints, and more!
In Georgia, there are three different BAC limits:
- 0.08% for drivers over 21
- 0.04% for commercial drivers
- 0.02% for drivers under 21
If you hadn't eaten in a few hours, or even if you drank slowly, these
could also affect your test results. Time lapse matters too. Your blood
alcohol can continue rising for as much as an hour. So if you set out
within the legal BAC limit, if you get pulled over an hour later, your
BAC could have spiked up.
