Recreational Vehicles and DWI

While most people are aware of the dangers of drinking and driving a car or truck, many people do not know that the law applies to many recreational vehicles as well. Many times, a typically responsible person will be stopped and arrested for DWI while operating a recreational vehicle without knowing he or she was breaking the law.

By definition, a recreational vehicle is one that is normally used for fun and relaxation. It is important to realize that they also can be dangerous when operated by someone who is under the influence of drugs or alcohol. If you have been arrested for DWI while operating a vehicle for sport or fun, contact the Dallas DWI lawyers of the Law Office of Mark T. Lassiter at (214) 845-7007.
