Understanding Zero Tolerance Law in Texas
Typically, an individual can be arrested for DWI if they are caught with a BAC of 0.08% or higher while driving. However, underage DWI charges are much different. Under Section 106.041 of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Code, there is zero tolerance for underage drinking and driving. Being charged with an underage DWI can have serious and lasting effects on your child's life.
Depending on the circumstances of the offense, those charged could face:
- Ignition interlock device
- Alcohol education course
- Community service
- License suspension
- Up to $500 in fines
Additionally, your child may face other difficulties as a result of their arrest or conviction. This may include problems seeking employment, not getting approved for scholarships, or even being expelled from college.
