“Many people don’t realize that it’s perfectly legal for an adult in Texas to drink alcohol and drive—as long as that adult maintains his or her mental and physical faculties. And the problem with most field sobriety tests is that they don’t give you the whole picture—if a person is nervous or tired, or even if they have a medical condition, they might ‘fail’ a test, even if they’re not intoxicated,” he says.

Anyone who receives a DWI offense, which stands for Driving While Intoxicated, should be aware of the seriousness of the charge. The offender should seek out a Houston DWI attorney that limits themselves to only DWI defense. If found guilty, the offense of a DWI can lead to very serious consequences.

These consequences can include the suspension or revocation of your driver’s license, family fall-out, termination of employment and even incarceration. For those facing a DWI, Jim Butler of The Butler Law Firm has more than 24+ years of expertise to help you. You can call or email us today.

Do You Have Any Questions About DWI?

Most think that it’s necessary to register a blood alcohol level of .08 to be charged with DWI. Many find it shocking that this is not always the case.

If the police officer can demonstrate the driver is experiencing impaired driving ability through observation, it may be enough to charge the driver. Some examples are:

1. Swerving a vehicle to correct its course
2. Driving in the middle of 2 lanes instead of remaining in one.
3. Nearly hitting something or someone.
4. Hitting the brakes erratically.
5. Making a right turn at a stop sign or red light without coming to a complete stop. Also known as a rolling stop.
6. Being too cautious or driving too slowly.
7. Taking a turn too narrowly or too widely.
8. Allowing the vehicle to drift from side to side on the roadway.

It is possible to lose your driving privileges for 90 days and up to 2 years. For those who hold a commercial driver’s license, any refusal or failure to take a breath test could mean your commercial driving status is revoked for a period of 1 year. In this situation, the officer making the arrest can take your license and issue you a special temporary permit that comes with a notice of suspension. Should this happen, it is necessary to request a hearing on the matter with-in fifteen days or it results in automatic suspension 40 days following the arrest.

This only represents a couple of the steps in the process of law regarding the matter. As you can see, without the help of an experienced attorney, it is highly likely you will not know how to proceed in the most effective way to get the results you hope for. At the Butler Law office, Mr. Butler is an experienced attorney in Houston that understands the complexities of the criminal charge of DWI.
