    printer friendly version

    Question: Can you get a DUI while riding a bicycle?

    Answer:

    Arizona Law (A.R.S. § 28-812) specifically addresses this question. It is titled "Applicability of traffic laws to bicycle riders" and says that a person riding a bike on a road or road shoulder is granted all of the rights and is subject to all of the duties applicable to drivers of a vehicle.

     

    That means that if a person on a bicycle violates any law which pertains to cars and traffic on a public roadway, they could not only be pulled over, they could be cited (given a ticket) and be punished (be fined, have their driver's license suspended, or even be arrested) under the traffic laws, just like a driver of a car could be.

    All thought this law sucks I can also see it being good for your own safety. Just like you can get arrested for drunk in public...like why not and i mean just cause your a pretty hardcore drinker does'nt mean 4 or 5 beers wont hit you! Believe me!

    I agree, the DUI laws are all about money & revenge today, there is no rhyme or reason to the draconian DUI laws. I think it is criminal the way these laws changed from one extreme to another in the past 10-15 years when we the public were not looking!! Shame, shame, shame!!! On a bike now too, r u kidding me??? :-(

    Dui enforcement is no longer about safety. Its about how much money the state can bring in. In Arizona, first offense generates about $4,500. If you are jailed, they charge you for that too. It's become a booming business.
