Q: The law implies that it’s only “Highways” that you can’t pick up and drop passengers, so on any other road it’s okay?
If someone were to he picked up on a backroad or any other road other than a highway and then driven through the highway and dropped off on another back road, is that still legal?
MD Code, Transportation, § 11-127 -- Highway defined:
(1) The entire width between the boundary lines of any way or thoroughfare of which any part is used by the public for vehicular travel, whether or not the way or thoroughfare has been dedicated to the public and accepted by any proper authority; and
(2) For purposes of the application of State laws, the entire width between the boundary lines of any way or thoroughfare used for purposes of vehicular travel on any property owned, leased, or controlled by the United States government and located in the State.
