Holdings:

            The Maryland Court made the following holding:

  • The distinction between driving while intoxicated and driving under the influence of alcohol is one of degree. A person is under the influence of alcohol when the alcohol that he or she has consumed has impaired normal coordination, although not amounting to intoxication. Another way of saying this is that the person's abilities have been reduced or weakened by the consumption of alcohol. Intoxication means more than being under the influence of alcohol. A person is intoxicated when the alcohol that he or she has consumed has substantially impaired normal coordination.
  • For a test refusal, a police officer must advise only as to the "administrative sanctions" that will be imposed. It is only with respect to a blood alcohol content test result of 0.08 or more - the circumstance to which subsections Md. Code Ann., Transp. § 16-205 (n)(1) and Md. Code Ann., Transp. § 16-205(n)(2) relate - that ineligibility for modification or restrictive license must also be disclosed. The prospect of a modification of the suspension or a restrictive license under subsection Md. Code Ann., Transp. § 16-205(n)(4) is a mere possibility and not a sanction.
