The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is always on the lookout for technology that can help authorities in every state, including Maryland, get drunken drivers off the road. One recently developed testing device that is more accurate than current breathalyzers detects the blood alcohol content contained within the alveoli of a person's lungs. The alcohol is typically exhaled during a test, allowing a law enforcement officer to measure a driver's blood alcohol level.
Any drunk driving charge can be tough to fight in court. If drivers believe they did not violate the law, however, then they should assert their rights to contest the charges in court as soon as possible.
Once you have reached the legal age, you are now allowed to engage in a number of adult activities in Maryland including drinking alcohol. However, you should be mindful that once you have consumed excess alcohol, you must not drive your vehicle since you can be charged with a criminal offense if you get pulled over by a police officer. Drunk driving can lead to serious repercussions including accidents that often cause serious injuries and fatalities. Drunk driving is not tolerated in Maryland; the state imposes tough penalties upon conviction.
