It is legal in all 50 states to drive a car after drinking alcoholic beverages if you are over the age of 21 years. Despite this fact, drunk driving is one of the most politically controversial of all crimes. The state's DWI laws are subject to constant lobbying by powerful groups such as Mothers Against Driving While Intoxicated (MADD), and as a result, drunk driving is also one of the most aggressively enforced crimes on the Texas books.
The elements of the offense sound relatively simple. Texas law states that a driver has only to have lost the normal use of his mental or physical faculties by the introduction of alcohol, drugs, or a combination of both to be guilty of driving while intoxicated.
