Drink, Drive, Go To Jail… Right? WRONG.
One of the most popular quotes/slogans/etc. is the "Drink,Drive, Go To Jail" slogan. The unfortunate thing is, it’s flat out incorrect.
It is not against the law to have a drink and drive a car, as long as you are not impaired. Depending on the state, each state will have a different law as to the amount of impairment before it is illegal to drive. However, no state has a zero tolerance police regarding drinking and driving (except for minors). In Texas, one can only be convicted of driving while intoxicated if they have lost the normal use of their mental or physical faculties by reason of the introduction of alcohol into the body, or by having an alcohol concentration of above .08 in their body.
