DWI educational programs in Baltimore are helpful for any individuals in Maryland that have been issued a DWI or DUI. These classes can play a key role in applying for a new driver’s license, while also providing assistance for anyone struggling with alcohol.
DWI Educational Programs in Baltimore May be Mandated
Many people mistakenly believe that the terms DUI and DWI are interchangeable. While both of these terms sound similar, they do have completely different legal meanings. A DWI refers to anyone driving while impaired, as the driver’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) must be between .07% and .08%. A DWI is a less-severe offense compared with a DUI, but drivers do face the possibility of spending 60 days in jail and a $500 fine for first-time offenders. A DWI conviction may also result in a suspended license.
A DUI occurs whenever a driver has a BAC of .08% or higher. The possible penalty of a DUI conviction includes up to one year in jail and a $1,000 fine. The Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) also applies a 12-point penalty for DUI offenders, which may cause a driver’s license to be revoked. However, enrolling in a DWI/DUI educational program in Baltimore can play a key role in recovery, while also helping individuals learn from past mistakes.
