A bicyclist may be charged with Cycling Under the Influence (CUI) if they ride a bicycle upon a highway while under the influence of an alcoholic beverage or any drug. Unlike a DUI the CUI law does not have a specified blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level. The potential damage to others while Cycling Under the Influence is much less than the damage to others a person driving a vehicle could inflict.
What does the prosecutor have to prove?
1. Defendant unlawfully rode a bicycle upon a highway.
2. Defendant was under the influence of an alcoholic beverage or a drug or a combination of both.
Misdemeanor: 0-0 days
