DWI on Private Property

Many people falsely believe that they cannot be charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI) if they are operating a vehicle on private property. Although state laws may vary depending on the location of the act, most states do not tolerate the operation of a motor vehicle under the influence, no matter where the vehicle is being driven.

Some individuals believe that sleeping in non-moving vehicles on private property will protect them from DWI conviction. Unfortunately, even sleeping in a parked automobile while intoxicated may be cause for DWI charges. If you have questions regarding DWI in Texas, consult Dallas DWI lawyer Mark T. Lassiter at (214) 845-7007 today.

DWI on Private Property

Some examples of DWI charges on private property include:

  • The operation of cars, trucks, or motorcycles
  • Dirt bikes
  • Snowmobiles
  • All-terrain vehicles
  • Mopeds
  • Tractors and other farm equipment

DWI convictions can have serious consequences for the individual involved, and can be very costly in terms of both time and money. Persons charged with DWI have the right to defend themselves against the charges in a court of law, and may be able to prove that they were not intoxicated at the time of arrest, or may be able to cast doubt on the evidence against them.
