Methamphetamines and DWI

Methamphetamines are a family of illegal drugs that have sky-rocketed in popularity despite their detrimental effects and the harsh penalties associated with using and distributing the substance. Drivers who use methamphetamines may not realize that their driving abilities are impaired by the drug, and could potentially get behind the wheel when it is not safe to do so. Police may then respond to erratic driving by stopping a vehicle and arresting the driver for DWI.

Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is a very serious crime. Facing these charges means you need a committed and experienced legal advocate. Contact the Dallas DWI defense attorneys at the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter by calling (214) 845-7007 today.

Effects of Methamphetamines

Crystal meth, glass, ice, crank, and shard are just a few of the street names that exist for methamphetamines. Whatever the name, using the drug can produce the following effects which may affect an individual’s ability to safely operate a motor vehicle:

  • Rapid heart rate and elevated body temperature
  • Anxious energy and insomnia
  • Mood swings associated with violence

Since it is not associated with alcohol, the typically clear-cut distinctions offered by BAC tests do not apply, creating a significant amount of grey area in cases where an individual is facing DWI for methamphetamine use.
