According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 2,597 people were killed in United States traffic accidents in December 2010. Of those, 775 deaths involved alcohol-impaired drivers.

Georgia's Driving Under the Influence Laws are complex. Georgia DUI injury attorney Shane Smith can sort through the intermingled laws that potentially create complications in a DUI case.

The University Of West Georgia in Carrollton ranks no. 10 in alcohol arrests per 1,000 students according to a study released by rehabs.com. UWG also ranked 16th in underage alcohol consumption arrests and 25th in drug arrests per 1,000 students.

The study analyzed 2012 data from the U.S. Department of Education Office of Postsecondary Education. It compared American universities with at least 5,000 enrolled students and with residence halls on their campuses.

Campus officials downplayed the study's findings, instead commending university law enforcement for keeping the university clean. The university police chief released a statement commending his officers for "pursuing offenders and providing a safe campus…."
