Breath tests and "no-refusal" policies in Texas


If a driver in Texas is pulled over and accused of driving while intoxicated, the police may ask that the driver submit to a breath test to determine their blood alcohol content level. Drivers in this situation may be tempted to refuse to do so, for a variety of reasons. However, per Texas implied consent laws, there could be negative consequences that follow a breath test refusal, including the loss of a driver's license. That is because driving is considered to be a privilege and in exchange for the privilege of driving, a person must submit to a breath test if asked to.

The penalties for a OUI offense in Texas are serious


In Texas, just like every other state in the nation, if a person gets behind the wheel of a car with a blood alcohol content level of 0.08 or above, that person may be charged with drunk driving. Operating under the influenceis a serious offense in the state, so it is important to understand what penalties are associated with such charges.
