Anti-Drunk Driving Measure
On Saturday, October 1 2016 Noah’s law came into effect in Maryland. This new law affects everyone who is convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol even if it is your first offense. Here is what you can expect as a result of the law:
• You will have to get an ignition interlock device installed in your car for six months. This device takes your breath text before your vehicle can be turned on. If you are under the influence of alcohol your vehicle will not start.
• If you do not get the ignition interlock device in your car, your driver’s license will be suspended for six months.
• If you refuse to take a breath test during a DUI stop, you will have to use the ignition interlock device for nine months or your driver’s license will be suspended for nine months.
