Carthax: Ow! That was my feelings!: "It undermines the thought that we are trying to instill in young people that you don't even think about drinking and driving," said Rep. Tom Riner, a Louisville Democrat and critic of changing the law.

I foolishly assumed that drunk driving laws were created because drunk drivers are a danger to others. Now they are used by neo-prohibitionists as laws against alcohol consumption.

//actually had a friend get a dui on a bicycle. Idiocy.

Bikes follow the same rules as cars in Tennessee.  You can get a speeding ticket, a DUI, a failure to yield...  It's not idiocy if you're posing a danger to others.


How is riding a bike drunk a danger to others? Sure, it's a danger to the drunk bicyclist, but DUI laws were created because driving a 2 ton vehicle intoxicated is a danger to everybody. That danger doesn't exist with a bicyclist.

I rode one of these in Germany, they are awesome. Note: The drinkers are the engine, not the driver.

Guy I worked with just showed me of a video of one in Rosslyn virginia. It looks pretty fun but looks like it could be a hell of a test for local drinking laws.
