About DWI in Texas
In Texas, the legal limit for intoxication is .08 BAC. If an officer thinks your driving is impaired, you can still bestopped and arrested for DWI regardless of your BAC. Penalties get worse with every DWI offense.
Texas is a national leader in many areas―unfortunately, one of these is in the number of accidents and deaths
related to driving while intoxicated (DWI). Each year, thousands of Texans are involved in this tragedy; about2,000 of them die.Texas is also a zero-tolerance state for underage drinking; any detectable amount of alcohol in drivers under21 is a crime. Yet young drivers account for many alcohol-related traffic accidents, and the age group with themost violations and accidents are those between 21 and 34. Remember, teens and young people are actuallymore prone to reaching higher alcohol concentrations more quickly than older drinkers. Size and body weightalso play a role. Big Uncle Fred may be able to toss back those shots of tequila and maintain an allegedly safeBAC but younger, smaller people may not be able to accomplish this feat.While a DWI conviction requires a BAC of 0.08% or above, any driver can be ci
ted for “driving while impaired” 
by drugs or lower concentrations of alcohol.
Texas DWI Penalties for Drunk Driving 
Driving while intoxicated, first offense, is a Class B Misdemeanor that is defined at Texas Penal Code
That provision states that, “
A person commits an offense if the person is intoxicated while operating a motor
vehicle in a public place”.
 This definition sets forth the elements that must be proven to sustain a conviction. Those elements are:
The defendant, on or about a particular date
Was operating a motor vehicle
In a public place (street, highway, beach, parking lot, etc)
In a particular county
While intoxicated The Texas legislature has specifically defined the term “intoxication”, as that term is
used for prosecution of DWI cases {Texas Penal Code
49.01(2)}In addition, there are two definitions to encompass those who do or do not submit to chemical testing:
1) “not having the normal use of mental or 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 anyother substance into the body; or
