If you’re under 21, here’s
what happens the first time you are stopped for
drinking and driving.
- 60-day driver’s license
- up to a $500 fine
- 20 to 40 hours of community
- mandatory attendance in alcohol-awareness
Get caught drinking and driving
a second or third time, and the penalties increase, including
suspension of your driver’s license for up to 180
days. That’s called zero tolerance. It means “zero”
alcohol. And that’s the law in Texas.
