The American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland (ACLU) opposes SB 1150, which would unconstitutionally require a driver to submit to a blood test if they are involved in a motor vehicle accident that involves death of any person. To be clear, this is a nonconsensual, warrantless mandatory blood test without any reasonable suspicion of criminal behavior, no less probable cause, as required by constitutional law.
