This documentary is a deep look at the impacts that DWI’s have on society. Created by Texas Pictures, for the Houston Police Department [HPD]. Texas Pictures, knowing that they wanted teens as the main audience, assembled a team of high school students from all over Harris County to help create this harrowing documentary. Since working in conjunction with the HPD, they received rare behind the scenes footage of DWI enforcement, arrests and processing. Houston Police Department aren’t the only views the viewer gets to see. Perspectives from offenders, prosecutors and criminal defense attorneys are shown throughout the film
Watching this film gives much needed insight into the web that one night of driving drunk will create. For the driver, the rest of their life is altered, be it from a simple traffic stop to a fatal collision.
DWI deaths don’t just affect the driver and the victims. It spreads across the community, affecting everyone in the vicinity, from family to the community around it. Across the United States, an estimated 132 billion dollars related to DWI crimes is spent every year and 10,000 lives are lost.

There is a surcharge to DPS for 3 years for a minimum of $1,000 a year…” – summarizes Tyler Flood, Houston DWI Criminal Attorney.
