Bicycle DUI – What is the Law?

Yes, you can get a bicycle DUI in Ohio. Ohio Revised Code 4511.01(A) defines a vehicle under Ohio law. It includes a bicycle.  In State v. Shepard, 1 Ohio App.3d 104, 439 N.E.2d 920 (1st Dist.

An experienced attorney can find...

This means that Columbus will rely upon traditional policing to target impaired drivers instead of...
