The fear of dying in a car accident is very real. If you worry about this possibility, you are not alone. Hundreds of people die on Maryland roads each year, so it is a reasonable concern and one that should impress upon drivers the need for caution and care.
When a Maryland police officer pulls you over in a traffic stop, you can never predict how the situation will unfold. Sometimes, the officer in question might simply inform you that you have a brake light out and issue a warning with instructions to get it repaired right away. You might also receive a warning in some situations to slow down a bit or risk getting a traffic ticket.
