Harris County is the drunk-driving capital based on the number of alcohol related fatalities. 2. 60 percent of the county's traffic fatalities are alcohol-related, twice the national average* 3. Houston's DWI task force receives about $480,000 a year in grants to pay overtime for officers to catch and process drunken drivers *Based on a report by the Houston/Harris County Office of Drug Policy What to Do If You've Been Pulled Over After Drinking Be aware of Houston TX DWI laws. If you are pulled over, investigated or arrested for DWI in Texas, you generally have the right to do the following: No talking. Do not answer any questions. Only give your name and address. Just say, "I do not wish to answer any questions." No tests. Do not do any field sobriety tests. In particular, never do any test that involves following a pen with your eyes; walking nine steps heel-to-toe on a line; or standing on one leg for 30 seconds. These tests are rigged and even a sober person can fail! Just say, "I do not wish to do any tests." Do not take a breath test. Do not agree to a blood test. Make police get a search warrant to draw your blood. Unless a judge signs a valid search warrant, the police generally have no right to take your blood. However, you should never struggle or physically fight a blood test or any search. Simply tell the police officer, "I don't agree to this." Then let your lawyer argue in court about whether the warrant was valid. Just say, “I do not wish to take a breath test (or give a blood sample)." No searches. Do not let police search your vehicle, home, apartment, hotel room or place of business without a search warrant! However, you should never fight or argue. Just tell the police officer, "I don't agree to this search." Ask for a lawyer Even if police claim you have no right to a lawyer at certain points in their investigation, you can never hurt yourself by asking to speak with a lawyer. It will show police and anyone watching your video that you are thinking clearly and not afraid to stand up for your rights.
