WHAT IS THE LEGAL LIMIT FOR A DWI IN DALLAS?

THE LEGAL LIMIT FOR ALCOHOL CONTENT IN TEXAS IS .08.  

IN TEXAS "INTOXICATED" MEANS NOT HAVING THE NORMAL USE OF MENTAL OR PHYSICAL FACULTIES BY REASON OF THE INTRODUCTION OF ALCOHOL, A CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE, A DRUG, A DANGEROUS DRUG, A COMBINATION OF TWO OR MORE OF THOSE SUBSTANCES OR ANY OTHER SUBSTANCE INTO THE BODY. 

 

EVEN IF YOU PASS A BREATHALYZER, YOU MAY STILL BE CITED FOR DWI/DUI.
