CAN I GET A D.U.I. ON A BICYCLE?
You can lose your drivers’ license if you are riding a bicycle impaired.
Although a bicycle is not a motor powered vehicle, in most states the DUI statutes provide the same punishments for operating a motor vehicle or a bicycle while impaired.
If you’re riding a bike without safety equipment, such as a working headlight to illuminate the road, you can be stopped by an officer and issued a citation. Once you are stopped, lawfully the officer can conduct a DUI investigation if he observes any indication of impairment.
