Increased DUI Fines in Georgia


Effective July of 2012 the State of Georgia has added surcharge equal to 50% of the original fine amount in DUI cases.  In other words, if you are convicted of DUI you must now pay a 50% higher fine.  This makes the lowest DUI fines around $900 now.  The State also added surcharges to vehicular homicide, serious injury by vehicle, underage furnishing, possession of, purchasing and attempting to purchase alcohol.  The above surcharges only apply to defendants arrested after July 1, 2012.  If you were arrested before that date, the old fine amounts will be charged.
