Know the facts about Maryland's DUI penalties

Every state in the country has been working hard to decrease the number of drunk drivers on their roads, but they all take just a little bit of a different approach. Before you visit Maryland, or before you get your first license in the state if you are a new driver, you should make sure you understand the particular nuances of the DUI statutes here so that you can make sure you steer clear of trouble while you are on the road.

How to get a DUI without even driving!

You thought you were doing the right thing: You'd had too much to drink and as soon as you realized it, you pulled over and jumped in the back seat--you figured you could sleep it off and drive home in the morning. But a concerned citizen called in your car, and you awakened to a knock on your window.

Noah's Law and the Changing Penalties for Drunk Driving

Authorities in the state of Maryland take drunk driving very seriously. With the passage of "Noah's Law," the penalties for drunk driving will become harsher. The law, which the governor has indicated he will sign, requires all convicted drunk drivers to use ignition interlock devices in their vehicles. In order to start the car, the driver would need to pass a Breathalyzer test.

Criminal consequences for parking lot fender benders?

It is widely known that it is illegal for a driver to leave the scene of an accident that he or she is involved in, when it happens on a roadway. Drivers may not be as clear about what the rules are when the incident involves bumping into an unoccupied vehicle in a parking lot, however. In the state of Maryland, under the law, if you leave a damaged vehicle behind, you could face criminal charges.
