Maryland man charged with DUI, not having interlock device

Ignition interlock devices (IIDs) are a part of many Marylanders' lives. Under the Drunk Driving Reduction Act of 2016 ("Noah's Law") people convicted of certain DUI-related offenses to have an IID on their vehicles for a designated period.

If you've been ordered to have an IID and you're caught driving without one by law enforcement officers, you can face further criminal penalties.

A 41-year-old Maryland man was charged with multiple offenses after allegedly driving under the influence and not having a required IID in his vehicle. The man was pulled over earlier this month in Wicomico County around Route 13 and Naylor Mill Road.

According to deputies with the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office, the man was spotted swerving across the center line. When they pulled over the driver, they say they saw an open beer bottle in the cup holder. They also say they believed him to be under the influence. They observed that his vehicle didn't have an IID, even though he was driving with a restriction on his driver's license that required one.

The charges the man is facing include DUI, DWI, driving with any amount of alcohol in his system and not having a required IID. It was not reported what previous conviction(s) prompted the IID to be mandated.

If you've been ordered to have an IID on your vehicle, it's essential to understand what you're required to do to keep it in working order and to use it properly. Not complying with all of the requirements of the device will only exacerbate your legal problems. Your Maryland DUI attorney can answer any questions you have and provide valuable guidance.
