DUI Percocet Georgia
Percocet is the brand name for a combination of acetaminophen and Oxycodone. While Oxycodone is a narcotic pain reliever, acetaminophen is not as strong. It is often prescribed to treat moderate to severe pain and is classified as a Schedule 2 drug because of its high potential for abuse. With side effects that can impair reaction time and thinking, driving is not recommended when you are taking this medication. Combining this medication with alcohol may intensify these side effects.
A DUI Percocet arrest may be made if an officer notices that your driving is erratic and/or dangerous and you exhibit signs of drug use during a traffic stop. The arresting officer may ask you to take a chemical test, such as a blood or urine test. Please note that unlike alcohol, there is no legal limit for drugs. That means that you could be charged with drugged driving with any amount of this substance in your system if the officer believes that your driving was impaired. In some cases, a drug recognition expert may be called in to look for drug use symptoms.
If you plead guilty or are convicted of a DUI Percocet in Georgia, you face serious criminal penalties such as jail time, community service, fines, court costs, and probation. This punishment can be increased if you have prior convictions on your record or committed another offense while under the influence. Your license will also be suspended by the Department of Driver Services (DDS).
