DUI on a Scooter?

Written by Reynolds Defense Firm

On August 20, 2018

We all know it is illegal to drive a vehicle while intoxicated, but you may not know how broad the definition of ‘vehicle’ can be. Over the years I’ve seen folks charged with a DUI while driving cars and trucks, motorcycles and boats, tractors, lawnmowers, four-wheelers, and bicycles. Yes, bicycles – and the list may expand – according to ODOT at least, you could also get a DUI while on a Segway, an electric bike or even on one of the little electric powered scooters for rent throughout Portland.

I have to say that those scooters look like fun. And if they look like fun sober, you can imagine their draw after a few drinks. So, heads up on the scooter-based DUI, because I truly don’t want you to ever need Reynold Defense Firm’s help to start with.

And, with that said, if you or someone you believe in is arrested for a DUI, please contact Reynolds Defense Firm right away. You have my promise that if we choose to work together, we will do our absolute best to take care of you.
