What is the difference between

DUI and DWI in Texas?

 


 The terms DWI and DUI have the same meaning in many states but Texas has clear differences between these offenses. DUI is a zero tolerance offense that prohibits a minor from having any alcohol in his system whatsoever; whereas DWI punishes either a minor or an adult for being “intoxicated” by more than 0.08 alcohol in the blood or “loss of normal use of mental or physical” faculties.
