Maryland lawmakers seek to close Noah's Law loophole

Many of our readers have heard of Noah's Law. It was implemented in 2016 to mandate that anyone convicted of DUI -- even for the first time -- be required to have an ignition interlock device (IID) on their vehicle if they want their driver's license back. The law was named after a Montgomery County police officer killed the previous year by a drunk driver.

All about the ignition interlock device

If you have ever heard about the ignition interlock device, it's likely because you have been charged with driving under the influence. This device, most simply put, is one that stops a vehicle from turning on if the driver has been drinking alcohol. It is typically issued by the court for drivers who have had multiple offenses related to drunk driving. Let's take a look at the ignition interlock device.

Legal drugs could lead to DUI charges

While DUI charges typically refer to driving under the influence of alcohol, it is very important to remember that being under the influence of any drug can lead to an arrest. Alcohol may be the most common drug, the one that is the most easily accessible, but it's not the only thing that changes your ability to drive a motor vehicle.
