Is Drinking after a DUI crash or stop a good idea

Sunday, August 31, 2014

drinking after a crash to beat a DUIOn Saturday, August 30, 2014, the Tampa Bay Times posted an article on whether if you drink after a DUI crash can you avoid a DUI? In Georgia a DUI whether based on a breath or blood test, or if there is no chemical test, based on your ability to drive safe (which is determined by demeanor and field sobriety tests like the one leg stand and walk and turn) has to be based on alcohol consumed before or while driving.  This makes drinking after a DUI crash seem like a good idea, but first it takes your blood alcohol level between 30 minutes and 2 hours to peak. Further, a single 12 ounce beer should only raise your blood alcohol level .015 to .03.  So unless you guzzle a pint of moonshine right in front of the police, it is going to be hard to make a difference. On the other hand, all you need to beat a DUI is a reasonable doubt.
