    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.

    No you cannot. my friend was charged with the same thing and his attorney got him off because a DUI is while operating a motorized machine, or something that is not man-powered. if the device is man-powered, you can challenge the charge and it will be dropped. i would suggest contacting an attorney and discussing this with him

    While doing research about draconian DUI laws I came upon this post. This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard of. Why don't we just make drinking at all illegal (since that is the goal of MADD anyway) and indoctrinate our children that drinking alcohol is evil and shouldn't be tolerated at all. Does the term "Hitler Youth" sound familiar? To The Children, when you are old enough, enjoy a drink if you want to, be responsible but remember there are those out there who would just as soon create unrealistic laws to control your every behavior (it’s call social engineering
