A conviction for drunk driving can have a lasting impact on your life. Depending on a number of factors, you may be facing jail time, the loss of your license and costly fines. Even seemingly a minor traffic violation can have lasting consequences, raising your insurance premiums and even resulting in the suspension of your license.

Drunk Driving Charges in Maryland

In Maryland, you can be convicted of driving under the influence (DUI) if your blood alcohol content (BAC) was .08 or greater. If your BAC was .06 or .07, you can be convicted of driving while impaired by alcohol (DWI). The penalties for each of these crimes are different. A DUI offense carries greater penalties than a conviction for DWI.

The penalties you face will also depend on a number of factors, including whether:

  • You have a previous DWI or DUI conviction
  • There was a minor in your vehicle
  • Anyone was injured


With every traffic ticket or violation, points accumulate on your driver’s license. If you have enough points added to your license, your license could be suspended or revoked. In order to avoid adding points to your license, it is important to work with an attorney who knows how to fight a traffic violation.

  • Speeding
