Attorney Allen Brotherton Discusses The Possibility of A DWI on a Bike in North Carolina

By the DWI Criminal Defense Attorneys at Knox Law Center in Charlotte & Lake Norman


Now it takes up some sort of motor vehicle to get you DWI. It’s very dangerous, and it will be what’s called contributory negligence. As a matter of law, if you get in an accident and you get hurt, you won’t be able to collect a nickel, but you shouldn’t be able to get a DWI.

What about if you’re driving a moped or something similar, but it’s motorized, but it’s not considered a vehicle like a car?

A moped is a motor vehicle for DWI purposes, and in fact, that happens a lot to people who have lost their license for a DWI, and so they’re riding the moped. You don’t have to have a driver’s license if it’s a moped. It’s a certain numbers, or cc limits, and speed capability limits to be considered a moped. You don’t have a license, so it’s a common way to get around for someone who’s in a road. Yes, if you are in a public vehicular area or on the public street or highway, and it is a motor vehicle.

Even though you can technically ride a moped because you don’t have a license due to a history of DUI or previous case, you can still get convicted in doing so?
