Guide for Drivers

What you need to know if stopped for DWI in Texas

Many drivers who are stopped for DWI don't fully realize their rights. At Joseph LaBella & Associates, we fight aggressively to protect the legal rights of people accused of drunk driving.

The following tips may help you avoid a DWI conviction in Texas if pulled over by police:

  1. Do not answer any questions other than your name and address.
  2. If asked to get out of your car, ask the officer if you are free to leave.
  3. If the answer is yes, leave. If the answer is no, then ask to speak to an attorney before saying or doing anything else.
  4. Do not agree to perform roadside tests.
  5. Do not agree to have your eyes tested.
  6. Do not agree to blow into a handheld breath tester. Your license may be suspended longer than if you take the breath test, but you may be able to win your case.
  7. Don't lean against the car. Remember that the officer is observing you and will testify that you showed signs of intoxication if he or she sees any.
  8. Be polite and speak clearly. Produce requested documents.
