Texas Constitution and Statutes – Penal Code – In Texas, DWI offenses and penalties are outlined in Chapter 49 of the Texas Penal Code, titled “Intoxication and Alcoholic Beverage Offenses.” This chapter defines various DWI-related offenses, including driving while intoxicated (DWI), driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol by a minor, and boating while intoxicated (BWI). Under Texas law, a person is considered legally intoxicated if they have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 percent or higher while operating a motor vehicle. However, even if a person’s BAC is below 0.08 percent, they can still be charged with DWI if they are impaired by alcohol or drugs to the point where they cannot safely operate a vehicle. The penalties for DWI offenses in Texas vary depending on several factors, including the number of prior convictions, the presence of aggravating factors, and the level of intoxication. Generally, the penalties may include fines, driver’s license suspension, mandatory participation in alcohol education programs, probation, community service, and in some cases, imprisonment. The penalties become more severe for repeat offenses or if the DWI offense involves certain aggravating factors, such as causing serious injury or death.
