With the cold weather that we have been experiencing recently, Baltimore County Police would like to remind motorists about leaving their cars running and unattended. Maryland Law prohibits leaving an unattended running vehicle. This can result in a potential penalty of a $70 fine and one point on your driving record.

If you leave your car running, there is a strong possibility of your car being stolen and used to commit other crimes. This not only causes a loss to you but could also help thieves victimize others. To learn more: https://t.co/pPR7FBJuO0
