Drug Offenses

Driving offenses account for more run-ins with the law than any other offense, in Rockville as in other parts of the country. Transportation authorities ticket those who violate the rules of the road, with many infractions involving more than merely paying a fine. Repeat offenders may lose their driver’s license, driving privileges or face jail. If you are in an accident, you may face civil liability and, in some cases, punitive damages. However, there are alternatives.

Driving under the influence or operating a vehicle while intoxicated carries different penalties. There are mandatory minimums for incarceration if the driver’s BAC is above .20, or in the event of a repeat conviction. Additionally, the Department of Motor Vehicles can impose consequences on those convicted or arrested for DUI, which includes suspension of a license for a period of one year.
