Intoxication under Texas Law: Blood Alcohol Content (BAC)
The Texas Penal Code outlaws driving while intoxicated (DWI) and state law also defines exactly what will be considered “intoxication” – under Texas Penal Code Section §49.01 (2)(b), any driver over the age of 21 years is assumed to be intoxicated if the driver’s breath or blood test shows an alcohol content of .08% or more.
Austin DWI attorney Mark McCrimmon reminds that you can be charged with being legally intoxicated if any one of these three tests (blood, breath, or urine) shows an alcohol concentration of 0.08%. You may also be charged if you are without “the normal use of mental or physical faculties by reason of the introduction of alcohol, a controlled substance, a drug, a dangerous drug, a combination of two or more of those substances, or any other substance into the body.”
