Can I get a DUI on a bicycle in Arizona?

A question that we get asked a lot is: Can I get a DUI in Arizona on a bicycle?

The short answer is yes and no. In Arizona, the DUI statutes say you must be in control of a motorized vehicle. Pedaling a bike or riding on a skateboard does not qualify as a motorized vehicle. There is an exception to this rule and it is explained in the video below.

David Cantor explains if you can get a DUI on a bike in Arizona in this short video:


Now things get a little tricky if you are operating a motorized bicycle (Whizzer) or skateboard. If the motor is engaged, it would constitute operation of a motor vehicle. If you or someone you know has been charged with a DUI on a bicycle or something similar, please contact our office, we can help!
