Snow has been falling steadily in Houston since this morning and the commute
looks to be terrible since the roads are going to be slick even it stops
snowing. There will be several accidents this evening due to the weather.
Please drive safely today.
Do not make things worse by stopping for a quick happy hour drink. A simple
snow related accident will turn into something much worse...a DWI. A police officer is likely to arrest you when this happens since they
will smell an odor of alcohol and you will not be able to do the
field sobriety tests at the scene because of the weather. After being arrested without any
evidence I would find it unlikely that anyone would submit to a
breath test. Keep in mind that police officers have a different burden of proof when
arresting someone for driving while intoxicated than they have to prove
in a court of law.
