I never think of Houston, Texas as a vacation spot like Miami, Orlando, or Los Angeles, but this summer I have seen an increase in people getting arrested for DWI in Houston while vacationing. The trouble with this happening apart from the obvious is that the Harris County, Texas courts do not accommodate someone that lives outside the state. In other words, the person must make all of their court appearances. The first court setting after a DWI arrest in Harris County, Texas is a week later. Most people do not vacation that long and need to return home. Their case will not be transferred to their home state. In fact, they will be required to return to Houston, Texas for every court setting. This becomes an expensive proposition. Also, any license suspensions that occur in Texas will follow them to the state where they reside. Lastly, they may face additional consequences in their state for any DWI conviction that may occur in Texas.
