Texas is one of the few states that distinguishes between Driving While Intoxicated and Driving Under the Influence. Driving Under the Influence is a criminal offense applied only to persons under the age of 21 if they have any detectable amount of alcohol in their system.


If the officer believes a person under 21 is intoxicated, that officer may charge the person with the more serious crime of DWI. Driving While Intoxicated is a criminal offense in which a person (minor or adult) is suspected of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated.
