DUI VS. DWI: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE FOR AN ARREST IN MARYLAND? [INFOGRAPHIC]
Approximately every 58 hours, someone is killed by a drunk driver in Maryland. In 2011, over 22,000 arrests were made in the state for driving under the influence of alcohol.
If you choose to drink alcohol and get behind the wheel, it can have serious implications for your future. A DWI-driving while intoxicated-charge can happen even if your blood alcohol content is below 0.08%. You can lose your license and have to pay hefty fines, even for a first offense. A DUI-driving under the influence-charge can result in jail time in addition to license suspension and fines. That’s why it’s important to have a DUI lawyer in the Maryland and D.C. area fight for your legal rights.
