Sobriety Checkpoints in Texas

Texas lawmakers are renewing their attempt to pass a sobriety checkpoints bill in the new legislative session. Sobriety checkpoints have not been allowed in the state since 1994. Many lawmakers believe that the checkpoints would cut down on the high rate of DWI's in the state. In the past, these sort of bills have not been successfully passed due to concerns that many innocent drivers would be stopped and checked.
