Be Aware of Texas DWI Laws

Hablamos Espanol. Llame 214-524-5782.

The Texas Penal Code is the binding law that defines criminal offenses in the Lone Star State. Title 10, Chapter 49.01(2)(a)-(b) of the The Texas Penal Code defines intoxication as, "(A) not having the normal use of mental or physical faculties by reason of the introduction of alcohol, a controlled substance, a drug, a dangerous drug, a combination of two or more of those substances, or any other substance into the body; or (B) having an alcohol concentration of 0.08 or more."

Blood or breath alcohol is documented on police reports as BAC or a BAC score. Section 49.04 of the code specifically addresses driving while intoxicated and states that a person commits an offense if they are intoxicated while operating a motor vehicle in a public place.

DWI is a Class B misdemeanor, with a minimum term of confinement of 72 hours. Texas law also allows police officers to stop and arrest an individual under a DWI offense if they feel the person's driving is impaired, regardless of their BAC score.
