Troopers arrest 56 people for DUI over Thanksgiving

According to the Maryland State Police, more than 8,900 drivers were pulled over Thanksgiving weekend. Ninety-six of those drivers have been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI), 56 were accused of drug violations and 133 faced other criminal charges.

Maryland drunk driving laws

Maryland's laws for driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) can be confusing. Do you have to take a breath test or field sobriety test? What happens if you refuse? What are the penalties for first offense DUI? How much larger are the penalties for second offense DUI? What is a felony DUI?

DWI patrols increase during Halloween weekend

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 40 percent of all traffic fatalities during the Halloween weekend involve drunk driving. That is why the Maryland State Police are ramping up their patrols during the upcoming Halloween weekend. From October 26 to October 31, expect to see more patrols on the roads and increased enforcement of Maryland DWI laws and other traffic laws.

New DUI blood test law may contradict the fourth amendment

According to many drivers in the state of Maryland driving is a privilege not a right. When you get behind the wheel of a vehicle you are responsible for what happens. This becomes significantly more true when there are car accidents that may involve drunk drivers.
