Is it Legal to Drink and Drive an Electric MotorcycleElectric Motorcycles Are a Popular Alternative After DUIs

Electric motorcycles are a great alternative for people who just lost their license to a DUI because you do not need one to operate an electric motorcycle according to federal law. With an electric motorcycle you can still get to work, see friends and anything else you need to do. In fact, sales of electric motorcycles spike right after the holidays because so many people lose their licenses to DUIs and need a new way to get around.

This raises the obvious question for people who like to drink and still get around: is it legal to drink and drive an electric motorcycle? Losing your license to a DUI, only to get your Razor electric motorcycle impounded for the same thing leaves you even worse off than before, so let’s take a quick look at how the law treats this issue.

The Law on DUI and Electric Motorcycles

The relevant laws will vary by state and municipality, and it is impossible to list them all. The important thing is to look at is a couple of specific laws in your state and town to determine how DUI laws apply to electric motorcycles where you live. For example, in California no bikes qualify as vehicles, which means you cannot get a DUI. You might get a ticket, but it will not be related to your driving record. In most places where bicycles are treated separately from motor vehicles, electric motorcycles are still classified as bikes, and are not subject to DUI specific laws. That said, it is still rarely legal to ride any kind of bike when you’re drunk, and an electric motorcycle might draw more attention than a normal cyclist would.

The Reality of Driving an Electric Motorcycle While Drunk

In general, people who ride bikes drunk are only really a danger to themselves. There are very few examples of drunk cyclists causing major accidents leading to harm for anyone but themselves. Drunk cyclists are usually treated pretty leniently by police officers, regardless of what the actual legal restriction may be. However, this leniency may start to be reduced as more and more people start to use electric motorcycles. If there is a big enough increase in accidents involving electric motorcycles, then police officers will be more likely to to use drunk and disorderly charges or similar laws to punish people who are operating electric motorcycles drunk. These may not be as bad as traditional DUIs, but they are still a legal punishment.

In most places in the country, the police will be more concerned with you causing a nuisance with your drunk driving on an electric motorcycle than any real concern about public safety as in normal DUIs. Therefore, if you need to drive drunk, just go slow and stay under the proverbial radar, and you shouldn’t have any problems.
