Driving under the influence of alcohol or while intoxicated carries substantial penalties in the state of Maryland. The legal limit in Maryland is .08 BAC (blood alcohol content). Often the alcohol-related charges stem from a routine traffic stop, investigation of an accident, erratic driving which causes law enforcement to suspect alcohol, among other things. The penalties if you are found guilty can include jail, probation, fines, and alcohol counseling, as well as the imposition of points on your driving record that can ultimately lead to the suspension or revocation of your driving privileges. It can even lead to the suspension of your license BEFORE you ever go to court.
