Pulled Over in TX? Know Your Rights To Prevent a DWI Arrest

Drunk Driving | DUI

Just because you are pulled over by the police in the state of Texas does not mean you are automatically guilty of a crime. Nor does being pulled over automatically mean your rights are suspended.

Every year, hundreds of thousands of people are pulled over by police on Texas roads. These stops are made for a variety of reasons. If you are ever one of these people, you need to remember that you still have rights if you want to avoid problems. This is particularly true where DWIs are concerned.

In this post, we’re going to cover what your rights are in the event you are pulled over by the police and what you should do. Remember that these [...]

Day Drinking During the Pandemic? Don’t Drive in Texas!

Drunk Driving | DUI

With malls closed, concerts canceled, and people being arrested for going to parks, a lot of people are resorting to just staying home.

While many people are opting for Netflix, many more around the country are taking the opportunity to kick back and enjoy some drinking. The Texas Alcoholic Beverages Commission has loosened rules around alcohol sales.

If you’re one of the millions of people who finds themselves drinking a bit more than usual lately, remember that felony DUI laws are still in effect. Police around the state of Texas are on high alert for offenders. Knowing what constitutes felony DUI can help to keep you safe and out of jail.

More Texans Will Drive Drunk Over Halloween – Don’t Get Charged

Drunk Driving | DUI

Halloween looks very different as you grow up. As an adult, Halloween is all about late-night costume parties with friends. Maybe that means driving across town to a friend’s house or to a local bar.

For children, Halloween means trick-or-treating around the neighborhood. The streets are their playground…our littlest neighbors running across to the next house or catching up with their friends.

This combination has proven year after year again to be extremely dangerous. Let’s take a look at the tragic statistics…

The Tragic Statistics of Halloween Drunk Driving

Halloween is the deadliest day when it comes to child pedestrian fatalities. Kids are twice as likely to be killed on Halloween than on any other day of the year.

You’re Facing a Texas DWI…Again – What It Means

Drunk Driving | DUI | DUIA

Have you heard the old Texas Department of Transportation campaign slogan, Don’t Mess with Texas? It was an effort begun back in the 1980s to reduce litter along Texas highways statewide, but since then has taken on a much larger meaning.

In fact, today it seems to apply quite well to repeat DWI offenders here in the Lone Star State. Especially when statistics say they currently account for one of every 20 people serving in Texas prisons – nearly three dozen of whom are in for life.

So, how does a Texas DWI offender go from facing a year or so with no driver’s license to spending the rest of their life in jail?

Today we specifically cover how [...]

Could Your Teen Be Charged with a Texas DWI This Prom Season?

Drunk Driving | DUI | DUIA

Juvenile drinking and driving have a high potential for serious crashes that could result in severe injuries and even death. Sadly, most kids neither have the history nor knowledge of all the things that might go wrong when they get behind the wheel drunk. Many of them are also so naïve that they believe bad things simply can’t happen to them.

This is probably why prom season has historically been a dangerous time for teen drivers in Texas. Prom brings parties and many other situations where teenagers are more likely to drink alcohol or use drugs. Some of these intoxicated teens will then get into cars and drive, oblivious to all the possible dangers that lie in wait.

Texans Don’t Have to Take a St. Paddy’s Day DWI Lying Down

Drunk Driving | DUI

Were you among those who contributed to the consumption of 819% more Guinness than usual this St. Paddy’s Day? Perhaps you were one of the 32% of men who admit they binge drink when the rivers turn green? More than anything, we hope you were not involved in any of the alcohol-related car crashes that statistically claim a life every 37 minutes over the St. Patrick’s Day holiday.

Of course, things aren’t always quite so cut-and-dried. Did you know Texas is a state in which a motorist can get a DWI without actually driving (our courts have defined the term “operating” quite broadly)? Or that there are a number of substances that can “read” as alcohol on a [...]
