Suspected of DWI and Need to Fight For Your License?
Contact Houston DWI Lawyer Tad A. Nelson Today!
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 have to contend with having their Texas Driver 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. Thus, strict law enforcement regarding impaired driving.
Furthermore, if a person who relies on their own personal transportation as a primary means of transportation to and from work, family members, and as a general component of a fruitful & modern lifestyle, the revocation of their Texas Driver License can put a damper on things. It’s a huge inconvenience that could be avoided or countered.
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.
If you’re stopped and suspected of drunk driving by an officer, whether you’re intoxicated or not, there’s a strong chance you’ll lose your driving privileges.
Even if you’re aren’t intoxicated and inform the officer, the refusal or failure of a field sobriety test means your Texas Driver License will likely be suspended. If you or a family member are in a situation like this and need to talk with an experienced DWI defense attorney, call us at 713-489-7373.
