The holiday season is always time to share with family and friends. Many of us take time off to celebrate. Lots of parties and gatherings involve drinking, especially during the weekends and particularly during the new years celebration. We all have to be responsible and have a designated driver if we intend to drink. If you are drinking be sure to pace your self and drink water alongside whatever else you are drinking. Do not attempt to drive while intoxicated. It is not only unsafe but highly penalized. If you do encounter a drunk driver on the road, call 911 to report them. You could be saving his or other peoples lives. The Houston police department will increase there presence in an effort to keep all of us safe during the holiday season.
Texas DWI penalties are based on factors like age, license type, and other circumstances behind the incident, such as having other passengers in the vehicle, or how events took place and their consequences.
DWI penalties you can expect can be:
- Fines and surcharges (also add court costs and lawyer fees)
- License suspension or revocation.
- Community service
- Imprisonment (even for a 1st offense)
- DWI education and intervention programs
- More expensive car insurance, depending on your provider
If you are involved in an accident with a drunk driver, it is imperative to call 911 to ensure everyone is safe and that the crash has the proper legal documentation. If the incident is not severe, you should still notify the police so that a report is properly written for insurance purposes.
The most important thing to take into account after an accident is the safety of all people involved. Secondarily is to consider who can assist you with the repair of your vehicle.
