A DUI or DWI in Texas is a very serious crime that, if you are found convicted of, can come with very serious consequences. In the State of Texas, a DWI is defined as being discovered with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of over 0.08% if you are 21 years of older. For commercial drivers, being found driving with 0.04% BAC is considered a DWI, and for those who are younger than 21 years of age may be charged with a DWI if any amount of alcohol is detected in their blood while they are driving. In addition to drunk driving, DWI can extend to operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs or other mind-altering substances.
In addition to a DUI, if you are a minor, you may be alternatively charged with a DUI instead of a DWI. This is considered a class “C” misdemeanor and may carry a fine of up to $500, licenses suspension and other consequences.
