Penalties for Intoxicated Driving in Texas

Having one DWI conviction on your driving record can cause serious damage. However, more than one conviction can result in very severe consequences. In Texas, every driver receives "points" on their record when they are convicted of a traffic violation.

A moving violation (traffic violation committed while the vehicle is in motion) receives two points. A moving violation involving an accident receives three points. Each ticket must be paid on a timely basis and also, if a person receives six or more points within a three-year period, you must pay a $100 "assessment surcharge," plus an added $25 for each point over six that you received within those three years.

When it comes to drunk driving, the expenses rise even higher. A first time offense for intoxicated driving results in a $1,000 fine, but multiple convictions result in a $1,500 fine each time. If you are severely intoxicated with a blood-alcohol content (BAC) of .16% or higher you could be fined $2,000. You may also have your license suspended if you receive four moving violations within 12 months or seven moving violations within 24 months. It can be possible for an officer to wrongfully charge you with a traffic violation or intoxicated driving, so fight your charges today with assistance from an aggressive lawyer.
