A DWI in Texas carries serious consequences in Texas. It is important to remember that a DWI in Texas includes not only alcohol intoxication, but also those individuals who may have recently taken prescription drugs or illegal substances. Just because you may have not been drinking alcohol does not mean you should submit to field sobriety testing.
One of the most important things to do after you are released from jail is protect your right to drive! In Texas, once you are arrested for DWI, your driver’s license will be automatically suspended or revoked within days. You have a limited time to appeal the suspension or revocation of your driver’s license. If you fail to appeal in time, you will lose the right to protect your driving privileges.
An arrest for DWI in Texas is typically based on three phases of DWI detection, as well as chemical testing of your breath, blood, or urine.
