Maryland’s DUI/DWI Laws
People who are charged with DUI/DWI have many questions. The fastest way to get your questions answered completely is to contact us. Below, however, we have provided some basic facts.
The difference between a DUI and a DWI is significant.
DUI charges are levied against drivers with a blood-alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or higher and could lead to a one-year jail sentence. DUIs carry higher fines and longer license suspensions than DWIs.
DWI charges are for drivers with BACs of less than .08 but who are still considered to be impaired. The maximum jail sentence for a DWI is two months.
Refusing a breath test may have serious consequences.
In Maryland, refusing a breath test may result in a $500 fine and two additional months’ jail time. It can also influence a judge’s opinion when considering your case.
There are specific deadlines to meet when addressing license suspension issues.
License suspension is usually immediate in DUI/DWI cases and you have just 10 days to schedule a hearing with the Motor Vehicle Administration. If an administrative hearing is not scheduled during that period of time, the suspension is automatic.
Additional DUI/DWI questions that people ask our attorneys include:
- Is jail time mandatory?
- How will points affect my car insurance?
- Are first time offenders eligible for probation?
We have the answers to all of those questions.
If you retain our services, you will be fully informed and carefully prepared for your hearing and court appearance, which ensures we can achieve the best possible outcome for your case.
