Possible Penalties for DWI in Texas
Although the legal limit for BAC (blood alcohol concentration) when operating
a vehicle in Texas is .08, DWI charges can be filed when law enforcement
observes impaired driving - regardless of your actual BAC. When possible,
it is always best to use a designated driver or to call a friend or a
cab for a ride, as penalties can be severe for DWI convictions, and can
get progressively harsher with multiple DWI arrests.
First time DWI convictions can bring a $2000 fine, plus yearly fines for
the privilege of keeping your driver's license, up to 6 months in
prison and a year of license suspension. Second and third DWI's can
bring fines in excess of $10,000 and up to 10 years in prison. If you
are convicted of more than one DWI within a span of 5 years, you will
face mandatory installation and maintenance of an ignition interlock device,
at your own expense.
