checkpoints are simply another way for the cops to congregate, do nothing, and still get paid.

I May Be Crazy But...: wild9: And he could not have been THAT intoxicated. Seriously, do you know how hard it is to stay upright on a bicycle while drunk?

Yeah, I do know. You can ride a bike pretty drunk, if you ride regularly. Although to be fair, I've never ridden when I was full out, throwing up drunk. I got off the bike to throw up.


Curiously I must agree. Maintaining your balance on bike, motorized or not, is surprisingly manageable even if your balance is starting to wobble. The biggest problem with driving drunk is the arrogance that comes with an alcohol buzz, and the stunningly stupid decisions it encourages you to make. Like riding a bike or motorcycle drunk.

/motorcycles are 36.25% faster while drunk.

s1ugg0: Jenna Tellya: this is one case where I think the rules of the road, and especially the steep penalties, should not apply to bicyclists. I was hit by a drunk bicyclist. I had to pop my side-view mirror back into place after the crash. The guy should be applauded for not getting behind the wheel of a dangerous vehicle and instead putting basically only himself at risk.

Ok, here's a what if. How would you feel if you were driving and drunk bicyclist rides right out into a county road intersection and gets blasted at 50 miles per hour. Would you be so casual if your hood was dented, your wind shield shattered, and blood all over your car? You get out of the car slowly only to see the horribly mangled corpse who's organs are now spread over a 20 foot area.

Now you and others will say "Serves him right, I don't care." But one person dead and another who is DEFINITELY going to have emotional trauma for the rest of their life.

Yea, I'm ok with the penalties. But then again when I go drinking the most mechanical device I operate is a bottle opener.


Emotional distress and minor property damage, vs death to a carload full of innocents. Those are quite different scales if you ask me. In your hypothetical, I would definitely not think "serves him right", I'd think "bad luck to him and the innocent, but thank god he wasn't driving a car". If he were on a motorcycle I might think "serves him right" ;)
