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.
