Texas Police Find More Drunk Drivers from 911 Calls

Passing motorists who call 911 to report drunk driving are seemingly helping the Texas police DWI units increase their arrests. When drivers see that another car is swerving, or driving recklessly, they sometimes call emergency dispatchers to report the incident. While it might seem like nothing is being done, the head of Irving's DWI unit says this is absolutely not the case. He remarked that it greatly assists the officers in locating drunk drivers, because there are too few of them to be able to monitor all the roads at once.

He notes that his team of five will even leave the city of Irving to track down a driver, looking for the matching license plate, or vehicle description. Sometimes, dispatchers will even ask cars to follow the suspected drunk driver, so they can keep police update on their whereabouts and the police can catch up with them. One dispatcher said that drunk driving is reported nightly and often leads to an arrest.

Unfortunately, public accusations can sometimes be wrong because they are being made by individuals who are not necessarily qualified to identify the characteristics of a DWI driver. When police pull the suspect over, they might already have a presupposition that the driver is drunk. As they administer field sobriety tests, they might see signs of intoxication that don't actually exist which may lead to an arrest of an innocent individual.

If you were wrongfully charged with drunk driving, then you should get in touch with the DWI Trial Guy™! As a Collin County DWI lawyer, I have successfully won over 200 cases for my clients solely with drunk driving charges. With these cases, I have experienced a wide variety of different issues, so you can rest assured that I am more than prepared to handle yours as well. Whether you took a chemical test or not, you should contact the The Law Office of Troy P. Burleson immediately.
