By now, most everyone in Atlanta probably knows that adults are recommended to get at least between seven to eight hours of sleep every night. Yet often, people feel as though they can sacrifice an hour or two here and there without hurting anybody but themselves. Unfortunately, there’s the potential for danger in that line of thinking.
It is not a secret that alcohol and driving do not mix. For years, experts and concerned citizens of Fulton County have warned drivers about the dangers of having alcohol in their systems while operating a motor vehicle. Despite this, there are still plenty of those out there who choose to drink and drive, oftentimes causing serious injuries and even death.
Driving drunk in Atlanta is bad enough, but when a person is a repeat offender, that crosses the line into sheer reckless behavior. Each time a person is convicted of a DUI in Georgia, the penalties get stiffer and stiffer. This is done in order to try to get people to think about the consequences of drinking and driving. Although the consequences can be severe for repeat DUI offenders, there are some that never seem to learn. This can be hard for those who are injured as a result of a drunk driver to accept.
