Latest update from our client, Ask My Attorneys about Cycling and Alcohol: Can You Get a DUI on a Bike in Florida?

Alcohol is a prominent and common factor in road collisions and traffic accidents due to its ability to impair cognitive function. Drunk driving is not only a ballooning problem for cars and motorcycles but also non-motorized vehicles, like bicycles.

According to the NHTSA, approximately 26% of fatal bicycle accidents in 2018 were associated with driving under the influence. In fact, cyclists involved were found to have an average blood alcohol content of +0.01g/dl.

Unsurprisingly, studies suggest that driving bicycles while intoxicated increases one’s risk of sustaining severe body injuries to oneself or a pedestrian.

Although drunk driving is a criminal offense, there are varying laws per state when it comes to DUI on a bike. The Florida statute on driving under the influence applies to ALL types of vehicles, motorized or non-motorized, like bicycles.
