Ignition interlocks and first-time DUI offenders

On April 11, Maryland became the 26th state to require that all DUI offenders, including first-timers, install an ignition interlock device on their vehicles. Illinois already has an all-inclusive ignition interlock law in place, and similar legislation is pending in California, Ohio, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts.

Learning more about disorderly conduct

In the state of Illinois, anyone who engages in conduct that is unreasonable and may alarm others may be considered disorderly conduct. For instance, if someone were to make a false claim about a fire or a bomb, that person could face disorderly conduct charges. Other examples include making up a report of child abuse when none is taking place or calling 911 for an illegitimate purpose.
