Frequently Asked Questions About Montgomery DWI Law

What is the difference between a DWI and a DUI in Montgomery County Texas?

DWI stands for Driving While Intoxicated and DUI stands for Driving Under the Influence. In the case of a DWI, intoxication includes alcohol, controlled substances, or any other substance that can impair a person’s driving ability. A DWI applies to adults. 

In the state of Texas, a DUI applies to minors. If a minor operates a motor vehicle in a public place while under the influence of alcohol or any other substance, they may be charged with a DUI. 

What is the definition of intoxication in the state of Texas?

According to Texas law, the definition of intoxications is: 

(A) not having the normal use of [one’s] mental faculties by reason of the introduction of alcohol, a controlled substance, a drug, a dangerous drug, a combination of two or more of those substances, or any other substance into the body; or
(B) not having the normal use of [one’s] physical faculties by reason of the introduction of alcohol, a controlled substance, a drug, a dangerous drug, a combination of two or more of those substances, or any other substance into the body; or
(C) [a person] having an alcohol concentration of 0.08 or more.

If any one of these situations is evident, you may be charged with a DWI. 

What does the legal limit of 0.08 alcohol concentration really mean? 

Under Texas law “Alcohol concentration” means the number of grams of alcohol per:

(A) 210 liters of breath;
(B) 100 milliliters of blood; or
(C) 67 milliliters of urine.

This basically means that to be under the legal limit, the average adult can consume one glass of wine (4 oz), one beer (12 oz), or one shot of whiskey (1.5 oz) per hour. However, this is just a generalized rule. The same amount of alcohol does not affect everyone the same way. Weight is an important factor, as someone who weighs 100 lbs cannot drink the same amount each hour and remain under the limit as someone who weighs 200 lbs. Of course, the safest thing to do when drinking is to avoid driving altogether. 

What are my rights if I’m stopped for a DWI?

If you are pulled over by an officer and accused of a DWI, you have the following rights:

* The right to refuse a field sobriety test. A field sobriety test is used by police officers to get you to incriminate yourself. By performing any of these unreliable tests you are only harming your case. Exercise your right to refuse. 
* The right to refrain from answering questions. You do not need to answer any questions when you are pulled over. By answering you are more likely to incriminate yourself, and what you say can be used as evidence in court (as your Miranda Rights state). 

If you are arrested and taken to jail: 
* The right to call an attorney. You only have the right to an attorney after you have been arrested and taken to jail. While you are being pulled over and questioned you cannot request a lawyer, which may surprise you. This is why it is important to remember your rights. 

Should I call an attorney if I’ve been arrested for a DWI?

Absolutely. The Texas court system is not something to take lightly. Whether this is your first time or a repeat offense, it is always in your best interest to have an experienced DWI attorney represent you. They have the knowledge and insight that could make all the difference in your case and for your future. Montgomery County DWI Lawyer Andrea Kolski has been winning Texas DWI cases for over 20 years.
