Vehicle Impoundment in Collin County

Collin County DWI Lawyer

Texas is one of several states that allow for your vehicle to be impounded if you have been arrested for DWI. When confiscation of your vehicle for DWI occurs, this is generally what can take place in a 2nd or 3rd offense within five years. Vehicle impoundment is far less common for first-time offenders. Your life will be disrupted when you no longer have the use of your vehicle, not to mention the fees you will have to pay to get it released. Many times, an entire family will be without a vehicle, creating serious problems. A DWI attorney in Collin County can help you maneuver the various hurdles you will encounter with DWI charges and vehicle impoundment.

Vehicle Impoundment in Collin County

Currently, it is becoming more common to require repeat DWI offenders to install ignition interlock devices on their cars. These machines operate so that the driver must provide a breath sample that indicates there is no alcohol in the blood in order for the car to start. When your vehicle is impounded in connection with a DWI, the DWI charge will be handled in criminal court and the impoundment of your vehicle will be addressed in a separate action. You will have to pay for towing and impound fees in order to get your car back. In some cases, the confiscation of your car can be permanent, termed forfeiture.

A knowledgeable DWI attorney in Collin County should be consulted to help you with your DWI charge and help you to get your vehicle back. My firm, the Law Office of Troy P. Burleson, has represented many clients in all aspects of DWI charges, including the issues related to vehicle impoundment. I aggressively seek to protect your rights and have your charges dismissed, reduced or can pursue an acquittal in court. Contact me today.
