Maryland DWI Laws Overview
A DWI is the lesser offense of a DUI. As mentioned above, a DWI stands for Driving While
Intoxicated. A driver may be charged with a DWI if his/her BAC is between .04 – .07%. For a
first-time offender, the driver may face up to two-months in jail and be required to pay a fee of
$500. In addition, the driver’s license will be suspended and up to 8 points may be added to
his/her driving record. If the driver refused to take a chemical test pursuant to Maryland’s
implied consent law, or failed the test, his/her driver’s license will be suspended as well.
