Can Technology Keep You from Getting a Texas DWI?

Drunk Driving

Since 1980, the year Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) was founded by a mother after losing her young daughter by a serial drunk driver, the issue of drinking and driving has been solidly in the public consciousness. Studies have been performed, laws have been tightened, and rehabilitation programs developed.

Yet according to TXDOT, a person is still hurt or killed in a vehicular crash involving alcohol about every 20 minutes.

Under Texas law, you are legally defined as intoxicated while driving when your BAC registers as 0.08 or higher. However, regardless of actual BAC, law enforcement may consider a person intoxicated and driving under the influence if he or she demonstrates impairment in any way, and research shows the [...]

You Were One of Many Texans Arrested for a New Year’s DWI – Now What?

Drunk Driving | DWI

Every year, we celebrate New Year’s Eve with the intention and goal to start anew. To make ourselves better in the New Year.

Unfortunately, if you were arrested for DWI over New Year’s, you may have to work even harder to keep your resolutions – and one of them had better change to “fight back against my charges.”

Why? Because the consequences of a conviction are incredibly serious. It will not only cost you thousands, but also force you to put your life on hold.

Sadly, this is something that many Texans will likely be going through this year. Over 400 people across the state were arrested for DWI as we rang in 2018, and the numbers for this year [...]

How Can Breath Tests Be Wrong in Texas? Let’s Count the Ways

Drunk Driving | DWI

At first glance, Texas DWI cases appear to be pretty cut and dried. If you get tested and have a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or above, you broke the law because you were too intoxicated to drive. You will be tried, and you will be convicted.

Right?

Maybe. Maybe not.

You might have read stories or heard about people who were pulled over for DWI, tested, and arrested – even though they were perfectly sober. How is this possible?

The consequences of a DWI in Texas are serious, so a false accusation is not something you want to ignore or let pass. Defendants falsely accused of DWI, even with an incriminating BAC, need to fight back.

Texas DWI Charge? How Much It Could Cost You

Drunk Driving | DWI

Getting a DWI doesn’t cost the same for everyone – but in Texas they’re always expensive. We’ll break down the potential costs for you in this post and tell you what the law says.

Don’t Believe the Cost Hype… Or Maybe You Should

Awhile back there was a TxDOT billboard near Austin proclaiming that a DWI in Texas costs $17,000. The link on the billboard told the story of a woman who was arrested for DWI. She lost her drivers’ license, spent half a day in jail, was ordered to serve 100 hours of community service and was subject to two years of probation. She also had to take alcohol education classes as part of her sentencing.

In the video, [...]

A Texas DWI Charge Is Not a Conviction

Drunk Driving | DWI
