Georgia’s DUI laws have a reputation for being especially strict, whether rightly or wrongly.
You don't have to drive a car, truck or even a motorcycle to be arrested for DUI. One Bolingbroke man learned that lesson the hard way. He was arrested on April 25 when he drove his lawnmower to a local gas station to buy beer.
As the summer approaches, you’ll start seeing more police cars hiding on the sides of the roads during the latter hours of the day.

That's according to a report from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
