Texas has always been a respectable state as far as law and order is concerned. The penalties for lawbreakers can be considered harsh in comparison to other states.
A person could end up being in jail for at least 180 days and paying up to $2k if they are arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, or DWI (Driving While Intoxicated). A second offense can cost someone up to $4k in fines, and can garner a prison sentence of up to one year in jail if convicted in the court of law. A person arrested for a third offense could be forced to pay fines worth $10k and may face long term incarceration of up to 2 years in jail.
