Have you been charged with biking under the influence? Thought you were too drunk to drive home, so you decided to bike? Well, swerving on your bike and having difficultly maintaining balance may be the least of your worries. You can actually get a DUI for it! Not all states include bikes in the DUI laws, but many do. Many state laws, and court interpretations thereof, extend the definition of “vehicle” to include bicycles and other modes of transportation – some even go so far as to include lawn mowers, wheelchairs, and horses. So yes, you can get a DUI in any of these situations, depending on your state’s laws. And a bicycle DUI, or any other kind of DUI, is regarded the same as a motor vehicle DUI.
