Two bicycle riders charged with DUI on same day
Well, of course this is in Florida.
We are all too familiar with the havoc inflicted (on us and others) by drunk drivers behind the wheel of a car. But what I never considered is drunk or stoned riders on bikes.
Our first guy was on his bicycle, riding home from the Pickled Parrot bar (NICE). The second guy, who is facing his SECOND charge of riding his bicycle while drunk in the past 10 years, was riding his bike in the middle of a westbound lane at night with no lights or reflective equipment.
I don't know, this is apparently more common then I imagined. Are they a danger to society? Or are they simply being responsible by not driving a car while drunk. In any case, I never like to see negative news reports about humans on bicycles.
