Motor Scooters/D.U.I.

| |

There is an urban legend that says:  If a motor scooter has an engine that is 50 cc or less, then the driver is not subject to being charged with a D.U.I. if he/she drinks and hops on a scooter.  Be advised that the State Legislature, in defining a motor vehicle in Section 42-1-102(58) C.R.S. 2011, has specifically included a low-power scooter in the definition of motor vehicle.  Therefore, if you drink and hop on your scooter you can be arrested and successfully prosecuted for D.U.I.  I have had clients who live in the downtown area and like to ride their scooters into LoDo to party.  You cannot drink and operate a scooter without risking arrest for a D.U.I.  Please walk or take a cab. 

Call me if you have any questions at 720-670-2500.

  • This post has really made it clear regarding the motor vehicle laws on drinking and driving. This has been a misconception in the public regarding the low power scooters and their exclusion from conventional laws. However this has made it clear that laws apply to any class of vehicle and operating one under the influence of alcohol is punishable.
