Vehicle Impoundment

Vehicle Impoundment

Penalties for Drunk Driving in Texas

In Texas, a DWI charge may be accompanied by a broad range of ramifications in addition to the actual criminal penalties. One such consequence is the confiscation of the driver's vehicle. This will result immediately upon the arrest of an individual suspected of DWI. Vehicle impoundment is used in many states as a punishment for the violation of DUI and DWI laws. When a vehicle is impounded by the state, the individual charged will be responsible for reclaiming it.

Some states around the country include lengthened periods of vehicle impoundment in a defendant's formal sentence upon conviction of a DWI. While the state of Texas does not specifically include impoundment as a punishment for conviction, the vehicle of the individual will be seized upon their arrest and taken to the pound. The defendant can later reclaim their vehicle at the pound.
