If you were arrested for driving while intoxicated in Houston, you’ll face more than a criminal charge for DWI. Persons arrested for DWI may face having their Texas Drivers License automatically suspended by the State of Texas, in addition to other penalties and fines.
In Texas, we heavily rely on our street and highway system as the motor vehicle is the primary form of transportation for most Texans.
To put it lightly, if a person who relies on their own personal transportation as their primary means of transportation to and from work, to and from family members, and as a general component of a fruitful modern lifestyle, having your Texas Drivers License revoked can put a hamper on things.
According to the Texas Transportation Code (§724), each person who operates a motor vehicle on Texas roadways has impliedly consented to provide a specimen of breath or blood if arrested for DWI if provided with a proper request by law enforcement that included the consequences of refusing.
In short, by refusing or failing a field sobriety test your Texas Driver License will likely be suspended.
