Holdings:

The Maryland Court made the following holding:

  • Md. Code Ann., Transp. § 16-208(a) provides that the state Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA) may not suspend a license or privilege to drive for a period of more than one year. The exceptions to this one-year limit are set forth with particularity in such provisions as Md. Code Ann. Transp. § 16-208(a)(2), which permits the MVA to suspend for an indefinite period the license or privilege of any individual who cannot drive safely because of his physical or mental condition; and Md. Code Ann., Transp. § 16-404(c)(2), which authorizes various periods of suspension for the accumulation of points based on repeated convictions for violations of drinking and driving laws. Section 16-404(c)(2) authorizes the MVA to suspend the license of a driver against whom a designated number of points has been assessed for violations of Md. Code Ann. Transp. §§ 21-902(b) or (c), driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The legislature has restricted the duration of such suspensions as follows: (i) For a first conviction, not more than 6 months; (ii) For a second conviction at least 5 years after the date of the first conviction, not more than 9 months; (iii) For a second conviction less than 5 years after the date of the first conviction or for a third conviction, not more than 12 months; and (iv) For a fourth or subsequent conviction, not more than 24 months.
