Don't Drink and Ride

Driving a car while intoxicated is not the only means by which to get a DUI. Riding a bike or the increasingly ubiquitous Bird or Lime Scooters while under the influence can also lead to such charges. Indeed, Los Angeles has reportedly just concluded its first such case against the operator of a Bird scooter who hit and injured a 64 year old pedestrian while riding the scooter in an intoxicated state: https://apnews.com/ea871e6bb5f149a59f7d883a221de018. The scooter operator allegedly had a blood alcohol level of more than 3 times the legal limit! The operator must pay a fine and restitution, will be on probation for 36 months and will have to complete a DUI program. These scooters are dangerous enough as it is when illegally operated on city sidewalks; adding alcohol to the mix is simply a recipe for disaster for the operator or others.
