Laws in Irving, Texas and throughout all of Texas are strict when it comes to drunk driving. Even one conviction of drunk driving in Irving, and you may find yourself paying fines of up to $2,000, spending up to 180 days in jail, paying an annual fee for up to 3 years of $1,000 to $2,000 and losing your license for 90 days or up to 1 year depending on the details surrounding your particular case.
In addition, penalties become even more severe if your BAC or blood alcohol content is over .15 or if you had a passenger who was under 15 years of age in the vehicle at the time of the incident. Second and third offenses will lead to even stricter penalties including fines of up to $10,000, up to 2 years in jail and the installation of an mandatory interlock ignition device (IID), at your expense.

Losing your license due to a drunk driving conviction in a city of any size, but especially in one as large as Irving, can severely limit your ability to get around.
