In Texas, the blood alcohol concentration limit is .08 percent

Anyone who is driving an automobile while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or anyone who drives while visibly intoxicated, may be charged with DWI (known in some parts of the country as DUI, or simply drunk driving). In the state of Texas, the legal blood alcohol concentration is .08 percent. Drivers under 21 who have any trace of alcohol in their system can be charged with DWI. Police officers typically will conduct a field sobriety test, or a blood or breath test, to determine if the operator should be charged with DWI.

Police may stop a suspected drunk driver if they see the vehicle weaving between lanes or driving erratically. If you are stopped by a police officer in Texas, you should be polite, because the officer looks for behaviors that may prove you are intoxicated. The officer may check your car for open containers, or see if you are slurring your words or having difficulty answering questions.

What happens after a DWI arrest?

Any of these visible signs can lead to a breath test and a field sobriety test. The officer may arrest you for DWI if you fail the breath test or field sobriety test. Keep in mind that a skilled DWI attorney like Charles Kingsbury knows how to challenge these tests in court and win a dismissal of the charges. In fact, Charles Kingsbury is a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration field sobriety test instructor.
