It may seem like a strange question, but can I get a DUI on a bicycle? In California, you can get a DUI on a bicycle. Basically, you cannot ride a bicycle on the roadway while you are under the influence of alcohol and or drugs. The penalties compared to driving while under the influence are a little less because obviously, you are on a bicycle.
And as a result, the safety hazard is not as great as if it was when you’re driving a motor vehicle. However, if you’re under 21 years of age, you can lose your license for a year. So the consequences can still be serious and have repercussions in your life.
