It used to be in the state of Georgia that the punishment for DUI convictions increased if you had more than one such conviction in a five year period.  You may or may not know that the period for adding DUI convictions together, resulting in enhanced punishment, is now ten years in the state of Georgia.

Ten years is a long time.  The chances are very good that if you enjoy drinking alcohol and if you foolishly choose to drive after drinking alcohol, then you’ll find yourself facing enhanced punishment for DUI convictions.   It’s simple math…the chance that you’ll be arrested for DUI more than once in a ten year period is at least twice what it was for a five year period.  Think about that and be wise and be cautious.
