Take Action – Maryland

Maryland passed an all-offender ignition interlock law, “Noah’s Law” in 2016. Although drunk driving deaths are down 23 percent since the implementation of the law, a huge loophole exists in the drunk driving law, which allows every first-time offender to avoid an interlock by entering into a plea agreement. MADD is working with lawmakers in 2020 to advance legislation mandating the use of interlocks for any plea agreement.
