What is the difference between a DUI or DWI in Maryland?
All 50 states have set the legal limit for driving under the influence at .08% blood alcohol content (BAC) level. In light of this, it’s important to realize that even if you don’t feel the effects of alcohol, your BAC could still surpass the legal BAC limit; everyone’s body and alcohol tolerance is different. In Maryland, however, a BAC level between .07% and .08% constitutes a DWI, which is a less severe form of a DUI charge. Still, a Maryland driver can be considered to be driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs with an even lower BAC level.
