4:17 pm

Texas is working to pass a new law that will make it illegal to drive “buzzed.” Its called the DWAI, driving while ability impaired and is being proposed to help fight the number of drunken drivers in Texas.

Texas has the most DWI offenders of any state in the nation. The DWAI law will target drivers that who have a blood-alcohol level between .05 and .07. Many Texas residents are upset over this law because they feel that they should be able to drive if there blood alcohol level is under the legal limit.

Lawmakers will meet in January to discuss the proposal and possibly pass it. The punishment for a DWAI will most likely be some sort of traffic citation.
