St. Mary's County, MD -- The St. Mary's County Sheriff's Department is reminding motorists that intentionally skidding, spinning your wheels, or making excessive noise with your vehicle is not only rude, but it's also against Maryland State law.

That law applies everywhere in the state, whether you are on or off a highway.

The state law is as follows:

Skidding: A person may not drive a motor vehicle in any improper manner intended to cause skidding.

Spinning of wheels: A person may not drive a motor vehicle in any improper manner intended to cause spinning of wheels.

Causing excessive noise: A person may not drive a motor vehicle in any improper manner intended to cause excessive noise.

If you're caught breaking these laws, you'll face fines and points on your driver's license. The penalties increase if it's found any of these actions caused an accident.

The fines for these offenses are $70 and one point assessed on a driver’s license or $110 and three points on a license if contributing to an accident.
