LEGISLATIVE NOTES

This section is new language derived without substantive change from former § 27-101(a) and (b) of this article.
In subsection (a)(1) of this section, the reference to “any other law of this State” is deleted as unnecessary because no other State law makes a violation of the Maryland Vehicle Law a felony.
In subsection (b) of this section, the reference to “the Maryland Vehicle Law” is substituted for the former reference to “this section” to reflect the revision of former § 27-101(c) through (m) and (o) through (gg) in the appropriate sections of the Maryland Vehicle Law.
