Maryland DUI Basics:
- Maryland has an IID (Ignition Interlock Device) policy for all drivers whose Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) is .15 or higher at the time of arrest. This may change, as other states have already enacted an IID policy for all DUI offenses, bar none.
- In Maryland, all individuals arrested for driving under the influence have the potential for license suspension, including first time offenders. Loss of license, temporary or permanent, causes great stress for many people who commute to work, drive their children to school, and complete other daily tasks by driving.
- Maryland cracks down on child negligence and endangerment with regards to drunk driving and has a zero tolerance policy. Driving drunk with a child in the vehicle incurs larger consequences automatically, even for a first time offender.
- Drivers who refuse to take a breathalyzer test are subject to immediate license revocation.
- Maryland requires all drivers with suspended or revoked licensure to take alcohol education and/or driving education courses before reinstatement can occur.
- Jail time is a possible consequence following DUI charges in Maryland and is usually a common sentence for any offense after the initial. There are, however, circumstances for which a first-time DUI charge can result in jail time, such as child endangerment. Jail is a repercussion that can cause immense stress due to loss of employment, delinquency on bills, and family strife.
- In Maryland, the minimum fines are usually $1000 for first time offenders, increasing in a minimum of thousand-dollar increments for every offense thereafter.
