What is the Difference Between DWI & DUI?

DUI and DWI stand for driving under the influence and driving while intoxicated. The terms are often used interchangeably, but the actual charges can result in different outcomes. For example, did you know that your age might affect your charge? Texas has a zero tolerance policy for minors driving with any level of alcohol in their system, so even if you are under the legal limit, you may still be charged with a DUI. DWI’s are typically reserved for cases were the defendant is over 21 years old and had results over the legal limit on their breathalyzer test. If your minor is charged, make sure you connect them with a DUI lawyer as quickly as possible.
