Unexpected Vehicle Use
The influence of drugs or alcohol can cause an individual to behave in a way that he or she normally would not. This can lead adults to steal children's bikes or go out into public spaces with delusions of space or time. It can also lead to people utilizing various modes of transportation while under the influence. Consider the following modes of transportation that can be ticketed for DUI:
- Bicycles and tricycles
- Boats and personal watercraft
- Buggies, wagons, and carriages
- All-terrain vehicles
While some of these examples are well known, such as riding a bicycle or driving a boat while intoxicated, it remains possible to be charged with a DUI in certain circumstances for using such unexpected vehicles as a motorized wheelchair after or while drinking.
If you have been charged with a DUI for using an unusual vehicle, knowing your legal rights and local laws can be extremely important in formulating a defense strategy.
