(Bismarck, ND) — A new bill would no longer consider bicycles and horses as vehicles when evaluating DUIs. The bill would mean people would no longer be able to be charged with driving under the influence while riding a bike or horse while intoxicated. Supporters say the current law discourages people from choosing a low-risk alternative to driving drunk. The Highway Patrol testified in opposition to the bill, saying drunk bicyclists pose a hazard to themselves and others.
