For many years now, drunk driving has been a key focus in Maryland with advocacy groups and law enforcement alike working hard to highlight the dangers of this behavior. While there remains room for improvement as sadly too many people still choose to hop in their cars after they have downed several drinks, impaired driving is no longer the only such killer on the roads.
Residents in Maryland can file for either a no-fault divorce or a fault divorce. The former may require a separation period of a full year before the absolute dissolution of marriage is granted.

If you are like many residents in Maryland and around the country, you may be watching closely the continued evolution of self-driving cars. You may logically wonder when the roads in your neighborhood might be filled with these vehicles. You might also wonder if these autonomous cars will actually be able to reduce or eliminate accidents as is so often touted. This is indeed an important question.

Maryland residents going through divorce likely understand that it is a process that can become demanding and all too time-consuming. When it comes to military divorce, that time can become all the more invested.

As vehicle technology geared toward improved safety continues to be advanced, it is easy for you and other motorists to believe that you will actually be safer when they take to the roads in these new vehicles. However, a look at statistics showing the number of accident fatalities across Maryland in recent years indicates that despite improving safety features and even tougher legislation, too many people continue to die on area roads.
