DUI laws in Georgia are brutal. Why does department of driver services require you to go through so much to get your license?
I've had 2 duis in Georgia, one in '06 & in '09. I did the DUI risk reduction program & got my certificate. Now they want an evaluation and I did that & he stuck me in a 17 week DUI intervention program and I have to pay $70 a week! Sounds like a money racket here. Also they say I have to have an ignition interlock device and my duis were not even alcohol related! I filed for it to be waived but got denied, I just want a lawyers opinion on this this is a bit much for a guy with just 2 duis.
Simply put it's because the politicians pass the laws, and everyone loves drunk driving legislation until it has an...

Going through a road block, cops allegedly smell a marijuana stinch. Driver doesnt consent to take any tests or to sobriety tests. Thorough search of the car (Highway Patrol and Local PD and K9's) doesnt reveal anything. Only charged with DUI for refusal to take tests, or consent to questions.
You need to consult with a lawyer. Your ability to drive and/or your license can be saved, but you will need the help...
Specifically, the ignition interlock device laws are what I'm asking about. I was convicted of a second DUI (2 in 5 years) on January 13, 2012. I served my full year of a suspended license and had the interlock installed in January 15, 2013. Under the old laws, I would have been required to have the interlock for 6 months. I heard from a not-so-certain source that despite my year-long hard suspension, I would still have to have the interlock for 8 months as the NEW law requires. I am two weeks away from having the interlock for a solid 6 months and want to know if the DDS is now going to expect me to have it for another two. Am I grandfathered in due to my 2012 conviction date or no? Clarification is greatly appreciated!
No. You will not be required to keep the ignition interlock on your car for 2 more months. The new law that went into...
