DUI/DWI Archives

A Texas DUI conviction can have far-reaching repercussions

Let's say you're driving along a Texas road one night when a patrol car comes up behind you and signals you to pull over. You immediately glance at your speedometer to make sure you weren't traveling over the posted speed limit. You comply with the request to pull off the road and wait to see what the officer has to say. When he or she offers an initial greeting, then asks you to step out of your car, you know there's more going on than a possible speeding ticket. 

How to not raise DUI/DWI suspicions on Texas roadways

Ever see a driver pulled over by the police and wonder what, exactly may have been the reason? It's easy to suspect speeding, but in many cases it is because of erratic behavior, the tell-tale sign of DUI.

To steer clear of legal problems while driving, it helps to know how to avoid becoming a target for a traffic stop. It's also useful to know what type of support is available to help mitigate your circumstances if a problem arises.
