Learn from Our Houston DWI Attorneys
The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) has the authority to assess surcharges based on specific traffic offenses. These surcharges are assessed in addition to other fees and penalties associated with traffic offenses, such as license suspension or revocation. Depending on the type of offense, you could face an annual surcharge of up to $2,000 for 3 years.
A significant surcharge is just one of the potential consequences of an arrest for driving while intoxicated (DWI). You may face jail time and other fines, not to mention license suspension. Fighting back is the only way to protect your interests.

Two points will be added for a typical traffic conviction and three will be added for a traffic conviction that results in a collision. If you accumulate six points on your record, you will face a $100 surcharge. You will face a $25 surcharge for every additional point.
