Ignition Interlock Device Laws in Austin
Driving in Texas with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 or higher will result in a DWI (driving while intoxicated) charge. However, Texas also has open container laws that prohibit open containers of alcohol in the passenger area of your vehicle.
Penalties for a DWI in Texas depend on numerous factors, including age, the type of license you have, and previous offenses. You can generally expect a combination of:
- Fines and surcharges (on top of court and legal fees)
- License suspensions or revocations
- Community service
- Prison time
- DWI education programs
- Increased car insurance premiums
For a first offense DWI, you may be sentenced to:
- Up to $2,000 in fines
- Three to 180 days of jail time
- A license suspension up to 2 years
- A surcharge of up to $2,000 paid each year for three years to keep your license
- DWI intervention or education programs
- Installation of an ignition interlock device
Subsequent offenses will result in higher fines and surcharges, longer prison sentences, and longer suspension periods.
You can also face even more severe charges if you are found driving while intoxicated with a child passenger (a passenger younger than 15). Penalties for a DWI with a child passenger include:
- Up to $10,000 in fines
- Up to two years in jail
- A 180-day license suspension
If you are required to install an ignition interlock device, you are responsible for all payments and fees, including the $10 fee to obtain a restricted interlock license.
