TX DOT Teaches Students About DWI Arrests
Employees from the Texas Department of Transportation showed the students at the University of Texas Pan American campus about the many devastating consequences of driving while intoxicated. The event was part a nationwide initiative to increase awareness about drunk driving among young people in order to decrease the incidence of drunk driving in the U.S. DOT representatives set up a mock jail on the campus lawn and participating students were forced to don bright orange jumpsuits, pose for fake mugshots, and feel what it is like to be placed inside of a jail cell.
Events such as this one are an integral part of educating young people about the dangers – and consequences – of driving while intoxicated. In Texas, a driver will be automatically considered guilty of DWI if he or she operates a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content greater than .08%. Drunk drivers place their own lives and the lives of other drivers, passengers and pedestrians on the road in jeopardy. Anyone who has sustained an injury in a DWI accident is entitled to compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, property damage and physical pain that was caused by the accident. An experienced San Antonio DUI accident attorney can help ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
