    understandably so, I'd be ****ing torqued if I ever had any sort of encounter with a drunk ****er in a car.

    one great thing about riding at night is that there are fewer cars to share the road with

    one horrible thing about riding at night is that the percentage of drunk drivers is higher

    A lot when I lived in Savannah, but I was probably as drunk as them, except on a bike.

    I tried drunken riding and it's not all that fun or easy. Too many pi$$ stops for my liking and maintaining any kind of a line is ridiculous. I prefer early morning o-dark-thirty riding, though and only with lights and flashers. I have no desire to become a statistic. The thing about early morning riding is traffic is really light and most of the drunks are home by then!

    This is why you shouldn't ride drunk:

    Living in Phila (like most other metro cities, i'm sure), you tend to find that drunks take cabs or walk home (or ride themselves). I've never encountered any drunk drivers here, at least not obvious ones. I'd assume most of them stay in old city and hop right on I95 to the suburbs or 76 back to jersey...

    While we're on the subject...

    Does anybody know what the penalties for B.U.I. (biking under the influence) are? I've always heard rumors of people getting busted, but the penalties were always a mystery. I can't imaging they'd be the same as D.U.I.

    I don't advise drunk riding out in public (on streets, for example) for obvious reasons, but this used to be a hilariously entertaining "event" that developed out of boredom in the campground back in the days that I was racing a mountain bikes a lot. Though some of us ended up being pretty fast, me and the group of guys I rode/raced with never took anything very seriously, so the night before the race it became a pretty regular event to hold drunken riding contests. Beer chug/bunnyhop contest, or the drunken track stand. One particularly bad-idea-filled evening had us launching off of an impromptu ramp over a still very healthy bonfire.

    We were at the cactus cup nationals down in Helen, GA one year and the "campground" was a school gymnasium with a stage for drama class or something I guess. We all got hammered and starting riding trials around the gym. I broke my coccyx that night (sp?). Trying to do a rear wheel pick/stall on the edge of the stage, I got stuck in my clipless pedals (I was on a cross country bike) and fell off the stage ass first onto the gym floor. Bike was still connected to me. Jesus H. Harrold, that sucked on many different levels.

    varies from state to state.

    it is NOT a DUI here. You can get busted for public intoxication, drunk and disorderly etc.

    I don't think it counts here either. I have a can holder on my beach cruiser, and it's very frequently populated by a delicious can of bubbly cold goodness. It's the beach, for cripes sakes. I should probably find out though. That'd be an embarassing way to get get popped.
