Georgia uses the terms DUI (driving under the influence) and DWI (driving while intoxicated) interchangeably, but the term DUI because encompasses drugs as well as alcohol.

In Georgia, a BAC of 0.08% or higher automatically counts as a DUI, but if an officer observes that a drivers ability to operate a vehicle is impaired, the driver can be charged with a DUI with a BAC of lower than 0.08%.  In either case, if a driver is driving recklessly, whether he is impaired or not, he is liable for the injuries he causes in an Atlanta car crash.
