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.

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.
