According to the bill, drunk driving will result in the loss of a driver’s license for one year.

TBILISI, June 5 – Sputnik. Amendments to the “Code of Administrative Offenses of Georgia”, providing for tougher administrative measures in case of driving while intoxicated, were considered by the Committee on Human Rights and Civil Integration of the Parliament of Georgia.

In 2020, the number of accidents due to drunk driving was 137. As a result, 9 people died and 214 were injured.

According to the bill, driving while intoxicated will lead to the deprivation of a driver’s license for a period of one year, and the driver will be fined 300 lari for evading an intoxication check.

During the period of suspension of the right to drive a vehicle, drunk driving will entail a fine of 2 thousand lari, administrative arrest from 5 to 15 days and an extension of the suspension of the ban on driving for a year.

A bill envisaging tougher sanctions for drunk driving was introduced to parliament by the leaders of the Citizens party – Aleko Elisashvili and Levan Ioseliani.

Today, for drunk driving, drivers are deprived of their driver’s license for six months. In case of repeated violation, the fine is 700 GEL, and the rights will be taken away for a year.
