Sybarite: serial_crusher: This is stupid. Bikes are vehicles, with or without an e- in front of them. Don't drive them while you're drunk. These people need to fix their laws if that's legal.There are plenty of states where DUI laws don't apply to bicyclists including five that specifically exempt bicycles (and in the case of South Dakota, tricycles and horses too). That's not to say you might not still get charged with something like public intoxication in many of those places, but you won't get a DUI. There are only a handful of states that have specific penalties for BUI,.

Neondistraction: I know in Indiana you can still get charged with DUI even if you're riding a bicycle. I think it's kinda silly to level the same charge and penalties for it, though. If you're riding a bike drunk you're much more of a danger to yourself than anyone else, whereas if you're driving a car you pose a serious danger to anyone else out on the road.
