‘House Of Cards’ To Film Second Season In Maryland. It started out as an experiment on Netflix and has turned out to be a huge success, and the best part is that it has Maryland ties. “House of Cards” is filming its second season in the greater Baltimore area. WBAL-TV 11 News got a backstage look, and the crew and actors, including Kevin Spacey, said they owe some of the success to special incentives they can only find in Maryland.

Tougher Drunk Driving Threshold Proposed. A common benchmark in the United States for determining when a driver is legally drunk is not doing enough to prevent alcohol-related crashes that kill about 10,000 people each year and should be made more restrictive, transportation safety investigators say. The National Transportation Safety Board recommended on Tuesday that all 50 states adopt a blood-alcohol content (BAC) cutoff of 0.05 compared to the 0.08 standard on the books today and used by law enforcement and the courts to prosecute drunk driving.
