Alleged DUI-related crash caught on tape

Dashboard cameras in patrol cars are there to protect the officers as much as they are those who are pulled over by police. The footage from those cameras often ends up in court in both criminal and civil proceedings, depending on the circumstances. The videos can be compelling, but they may not tell the whole story. For instance, the "dash cam" of a Texas police officer shows an accident that ended in the arrest of a driver for DUI.

Enforcement up for Texas DUI/DWI

The Fourth of July is a major holiday for most in America, and folks in Texas are no different. People take to the streets and waterways to celebrate the nation's birthday every year.

It's never a good idea to miss a court date, even for a simple traffic violation. But the punishments and consequences associated with skipping out on court might be even worse in a DUI case. While many excuses exist for missing a DUI court date-oversleeping, a sick child, or even having moved outside of the state-it can sometimes take the right legal action to avoid being punished for this lapse in attendance. If you miss your DUI court date, be sure to note the following:
