All-Terrain Vehicles and DWI

All-terrain vehicles can be an enjoyable and entertaining method of exploring the great outdoors, and many people use them for additional purposes. Such vehicles often allow individuals to transport tools, agricultural products, and other items across long distances and open land.

People who own or operate ATVs may not realize that most states consider them to be in the same category as other motor vehicles like cars, trucks, and motorcycles. If a person attempts to operate an ATV under the influence of alcohol or drugs, he or she may face DWI criminal charges. If you or someone you love has been charged with DWI while driving an all-terrain-vehicle, contact the Dallas DWI attorney Mark T. Lassiter at (214) 845-7007 today

Consequences of Drunk Driving

Because ATVs are not usually operated on public roads and streets, people may not consider the consequences of operating the vehicle while drinking alcohol. Consequences may include:

  • Injury to the driver or passenger in a crash
  • Injury to other riders or persons nearby in a collision
  • Injury caused by a fall from the vehicle
  • Property damage
  • Damage to the vehicle
  • DWI charges if apprehended

If an individual is found to be intoxicated while operating an ATV, he or she may be charged with a DWI and may be forced to pay heavy fines, attend alcohol classes, and deal with the consequences of their actions.
