Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)
Social drinking. Why not? Everybody does it. A few drinks after work before you get home to the kids and family seems harmless enough until you get pulled over by the police. Until this is the third time you have been pulled over for driving while intoxicated.
Under the pressure of public outcry, drunk driving laws in Texas keep getting more intense to discourage drinking and driving.
Get Your Best DWI Defense
If you have been arrested for DWI, contact Michelle Poblenz to discuss your arrest. First-time offenders face a fine up to $2000, up to 180 days in jail and a driver’s license suspension from 90 days to one year.
You will be required to blow into a steering wheel device in order to start your car each time you get into your car.
Additionally, there is a surcharge of $1,000 per year, for three years, to keep your driver’s license. Penalties for second and third time offenders are even higher.
If there are open alcohol containers in your car when the police stop you, you could be fined $500. If you have kids under 15 in your car, the fine ratchets up to $10,000, up to two years in prison and loss of your driver’s license for six months.
Protect Your Driver’s License
While you can get around in the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), you may not have the time to be waiting on the light rail or bus to get you to and from work, or to pick your kids up from their after school activities.
You need your driver’s license and attorney Poblenz works hard to keep your driving privileges alive despite a DWI charge.
