Texas Ticket Hounds

Round Rock DWI Attorneys

Driving Under the Influence Laws in Texas

Woman Taking a Breathalyzer After an AccidentGetting pulled over for driving while intoxicated (DWI) can be extremely stressful. It is illegal to drive while impaired in the state of Texas, and the consequences of a conviction can be serious. In the state of Texas, being legally impaired means the operator of the vehicle has a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08%. Texas also has a zero tolerance policy which means if a minor is caught operating a vehicle with any alcohol in their body can be charged with driving under the influence (DUI).

While DWI & DUI are used interchangeably it is important to note the distinction: DUI means an individual is under the influence of alcohol and DWI means an individual is impaired by the alcohol.

You could face huge fines and even jail time, so it is important to get some help from the Texas Ticket Hounds at Haller and Covarrubia. Our Round Rock traffic ticket attorneys offer free consultations and can help you fight for your freedom when it’s on the line.
