Party Season: Driving Back From Galveston, TX

Galveston, Texas is a beautiful historic island town located in Greater Houston with a population of around 50,000 people and its one of the places that many people from the area visit when they want to party and have fun in the sun.

However, it should be understood that the deputies of the Galveston County Sheriff’s Department are always on the looking out for people who may be driving drunk and violating Texas’ DWI laws while, at the same time, putting law abiding beach-goers and fellow motorists at risk.

Galveston, TX: Party Central

Its quite understandable how a person, or a group of friends, can end up on the island intoxicated. In reality, the whole purpose of visiting Galveston was to party anyway right? There’s nothing wrong (legally) with drinking and partying, but things can change if you get behind the wheel of a vehicle and attempt to drive home from Galveston while under the influence of alcohol. People die. DWI arrests are made.


Any lawyer that fights DWI charges in Galveston County will tell you that people make the mistake of attempting to drive back from the island while under the influence of alcohol all the time, and some of the cases they are asked to fight in court are 2nd and 3rd DUI offenses making the criminal penalties even more stringent on the defendant if they are found guilty in the court of law.

The Best Tip To Avoid DWI Arrests

Sometimes inviting a friend with you who doesn’t drink alcoholic beverages is the best decision you and your friends can make if you intend to go long distances from your home(s) with the intention of consuming alcohol while out.

This way, you aren’t dealing with a “drinker” who is being asked not to drink, but rather a person who doesn’t drink in the first place which will add to the sense of comfort for the person designated to drive. I mean, you don’t want someone who is compelled to drink as your designated driver do you?

Be careful and don’t drink and drive when visiting Galveston, TX.
