I got a phone call from an out-of-Stater last week about our old blog post- the Austin Bar DWI list from 2010. While talking, I realized that we had neglected to post (or see, lol) the list from 2011. Not that there's that much difference, but we do have an appearance from Antone's as well as the Yellow Rose. As before, it has more to do with the area and time you're driving than any other factor. If you're driving home from happy hour at the Dog & Duck Pub at 5 p.m., you're a lot less likely to get arrested than leaving Oilcan's at 3 a.m. Here's the top 20 Austin DWI arrest bars for 2011, according to Fox Austin
I was scrolling through Craigslist Austin this morning and came across an ad for $20 portable breathalyzers. The ad stated ""Get yours and avoid a DUI." Is this the magic bullet that will finally allow you to party within the legal limits and drive safely home without getting arrested?The short answer is NO, and so is the long answer. Let's take a closer look.
