Ignition Interlock Device Laws in Ellicott City, Maryland
Maryland enforces administrative laws for failing or refusing a chemical breath test. This results in an immediate license suspension with an opportunity to request a court hearing. Administrative suspensions are generally more severe for those who refuse a chemical breath test. For a first offense test refusal, you may be sentenced to a 270-day license suspension or an IID installation for one year. A second offense test refusal results in a two-year suspension. By comparison, test failure offenses result in 180-day suspensions.
Along with administrative penalties, you may be charged with a criminal offense for drunk driving. Maryland enforces both DUI and DWI penalties.
