Maryland Law Firm Helps Spread Awareness of New Maryland DUI/DWI Laws

Posted Nov 14, 2014 by tuckerlap
Tucker & Associates PLLC helps spread awareness of Maryland’s new DUI/DWI law for repeat offenders. The firm has warned clients and the general public of the law’s new and stricter penalties.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Press Release) Nov 14, 2014 -- Tucker & Associates PLLC, a Maryland law firm that provides DUI/DWI defense services has publicy urged residents of Maryland to be aware that Maryland Senate's Bill 87 on drunk driving has been in effect since October 1, 2014 and carries harsher penalties for repeat DUI/DWI offenses. Tucker & Associates PLLC believes that any practicing Maryland dui defense lawyer is responsible for spreading awareness of this new traffic law.

Senate Bill 87 specifically outlines penalties for repeat DUI/DWI offenses. The new and harsher penalties designates that any repeat offender will be required to serve a full year's suspension or be required to participate in the ignition interlock program for a full year. Senate Bill 87 is just one of several new traffic laws that has been implemented by the state government.

Many professionals in the legal field are not surprised that Senate Bill 87 was passed with little debate. DUI/DWI offenses are a well recognized public safety issue in the US, and Maryland has experienced tragic losses along with other states. Senate Bill 87 has already received positive support from the public.

Some attribute positive public opinion of Senate Bill 87 in part to recent high profile DUI arrests such as Olympic swimmer, Michael Phelps. Phelps was arrested in Baltimore on September 30th, 2014 for his second drunk driving offense. Phelp's arrest occurred just one day before Senate bill 87 was put into effect. Phelps' trial date for his latest DUI arrest is Nov. 19.

Although DUI/DWI offenses have always been a serious discussion in public discourse, DUI/DWI offenses commited by public icons such as Phelps help bring more attention to repeat DUI/DWI offenses - a more specific DUI/DWI offense apart from a one time offense.

The effectiveness of Sebate Bill 87 still remains to be seen as the law is still very new. It is the hope of the Maryland state government that these new harsher penalties for repeat DUI/DWI offenses will help to deter individuals from driving under the influence.
