Avoid a DWI in Denton County

What to Do to Prevent Arrest

Avoiding a DWI is not a matter of not getting caught; it's a matter of not drinking and driving in the first place. If you're already worried about getting caught and considering who to hire as your Denton County DWI attorney, you probably shouldn't be driving at that point. Our firm is dedicated to helping you to the best of our ability. We understand the penalties of a DWI conviction and how much they can impact your life. This is why we aim to not only represent clients in court who have been charged with a DWI, but we work to educate individuals, helping them prevent situations in which they may receive a DWI charge.

While our offices would be more than happy to defend you if you are charged with a DWI, you are certain to be a lot happier if you just avoid getting one in the first place by following these basic tips presented by Law Offices of Tim Powers. If you have any questions, feel free to contact our firm at (940) 580-2899 to schedule your complimentary case evaluation.

Follow these rules to avoid a DWI:

  • Limit yourself. It is perfectly legal to enjoy a few drinks before driving, as long as you are still sober. Always wait one hour in between each drink and one hour before consuming your final drink and hitting the road. It is important to note that you can still get arrested for drunk driving, even if you are under the legal limit, but this situation is very rare. If this does happen, your Denton County DWI attorney can often have the charges dropped as the only evidence will be the officer's belief that you were intoxicated.
  • Don't drink at all. Some people find they cannot limit themselves to one drink per hour and are better off just not drinking at all. Try drinking soda and juices all night and you may be surprised just how good of a time you have without any alcohol.
  • Walk home. If you live within walking distance, then get some exercise and just pick up your car the next day. It is important to note that you can still get a DWI if you are riding a bike, ATV, even a horse, while intoxicated. Your Denton County DWI lawyer can help you fight these charges, but it is best to just walk instead.
  • Call a taxi. That's why these vehicles are available.
