DUI, DWI, OUI and OUIL are all terms for driving drunk at or above a certain level of alcohol. Well over a million drivers (1.5) are arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs in the United States every year. Even though all states have lowered blood alcohol levels to .08, every state has its own laws and consequences for driving under the influence (DUI), driving while intoxicated (DWI), operating under the influence (OUI), or operating under the influence of liquor (OUIL).

         In addition to drunk driving being a criminal matter (court matter and a crime) it is also an administrative matter pertaining to the drivers license (immediate, mandatory and automatic license suspension). Immediate drivers license suspension laws for alcohol-impaied drivers, refers to administrative per se (APS), automatic license revocation (ARL) or on-the-spot license suspension laws. These laws are different for each state and each one has its own automatic license suspension consequences.

         In the State of Georgia, if you receive an administrative license suspension, form DS1205, an appeal must be sent to the ALS unit at the State of Georgia Department of Driver Services within 10 business days. DO NOT DELAY! Contact an attorney immediately so your administrative suspension can be appealed before you lose your right to drive without a hearing.
