Ignition Interlock Device Laws in Chestertown, Maryland
Maryland enforces both DUI and DWI charges for drunk driving. You can be charged by law with a DUI if your blood alcohol concentration is 0.08 percent or higher. For a first DUI violation, you may be sentenced to:
- License revocation up to 6 months
- $1,000 fine
- Up to 1 year imprisonment
- 12 points on license
A second DUI violation may result in:
- License revocation up to 1 year
- Required ignition interlock device installation
- Up to 2 years of imprisonment (minimum of 5 days)
- 12 points on license
- Mandatory enrollment in alcohol abuse assessment program
DWIs may come as a result of having a blood alcohol content of 0.07 percent or higher. More often, an offender is charged with a DWI when they have a low blood alcohol content but fail a field sobriety test. This means that DWIs are far more connected to a law enforcement officer’s judgment. A first offense DWI may result in:
- License suspension up to 6 months
- $500 fine
- Up to 2 months imprisonment
- 8 points on your license
Along with DUI and DWI penalties, you may receive administrative penalties and requirements, which are enforced by the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration. Administrative penalties come into play when you either fail or refuse a chemical breath test. Test refusals often result in harsher penalties. For instance, a first offense test refusal will result in a 270-day license suspension or installation of an ignition interlock device for 1 year. A second test refusal offense will result in a 2-year license suspension. By comparison, test failure offenses will result in a 180-day suspension.
An offender convicted of drunk driving in Maryland is required by law to install an ignition interlock device to reinstate driving privileges.
