Getting behind the wheel of a car after drinking is dangerous, and is harshly punished in the state of Texas. Although drinking and driving laws are designed to save lives and often do, many innocent people who never posed a danger to others on the road are accused and convicted of drunk driving every day. If you’ve been charged with drinking and driving, you need to contact a qualified DUI defense lawyer in as soon as possible.
Law enforcement officers must follow certain protocol in order to be able to rightfully stop, test, and detain a possible drunk driver. For example, an officer must have probable cause to pull a vehicle over before doing so. He or she must perform breathalyzer and roadside sobriety tests correctly according to proper procedure, and must have probable cause to detain an individual or take them into custody. Failure to properly adhere to protocol can result in the case being thrown out of court, or the driver found innocent of all charges.
