Spike in DWIs During Holiday Season

Houston has long been known as a city with a high DUI rate, but with the 2012 holiday season statistics released, it’s become apparent that 2013 needs to see a serious change. According to MyFoxHouston, 105 people were arrested on suspicion of drinking while intoxicated on New Year’s Eve in the eight-county region surrounding Houston. Fifteen of those, according to Fox, “happened in Montgomery County, the same place where six people lost their lives in alcohol-related crashes over the Fourth of July weekend just six months ago.” A prosecutor in Montgomery County who is part of task force overseeing those eight counties told Fox that two of the DUI crashes over the holidays in the region were fatal. One happened in Fort Bend County. 

And Montgomery or Fort Bend Counties aren’t the worst of them. According to YourHoustonNews.com, the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Enforcement Division arrested 54 people for Driving While Intoxicated over the Christmas and New Year’s holiday season. There were 8 fatal traffic accidents during the same time period, at least one of which was caused by a drunk driver.

It’s not as if Texas doesn’t have strict laws when it comes to drunk driving, but they don’t seem to deter drunk drivers in the Houston area form getting behind the wheel. According to the Texas Department of Transportation, a first-time DWI conviction can carry a fine of up to $2,000, up to six months in prions, and license suspension for up to a year. This more than doubles for a second DWI conviction, and a third DWI conviction has a maximum fine of $10,000, up to ten years in prison, license suspension for up to two years, and an annual fee of $2,000 for three years to keep the license.

If you or someone you know is facing a DWI conviction after the holiday season, don’t go through it alone. Contact a dedicated Fort Bend DWI attorney today.
