Nothin better than kayaking and drinkin. Good on ya.
The whole DUI thing has gotten way out of hand when people get them on bicycles, kayaks, and skateboards. If doing 70mph in an 18wheeler on public roads alongside families in minivans, then of course we want you to be "sober as a preacher on sunday." However, when they start handing out chicken-shit DUI's to people on unmotorized toys that operate outside of traffic and require no driving test, license, registration, o4 insurance, and can be operated by a 12 year old, something is wrong
Its all about money. Cities expect income from tickets, so much so that its included in their yearly budget. Also, when cities lose money in taxes, they look to the police department to make up the difference, which results in officers getting reprimanded for giving warnings and bullshit tickets such as these.
Which is how I've managed to never get out of a ticket... Almost got out of one by crying... either that or I even out the statistics so they don't seem like they're racial profiling. Bastards.
Also, question. How the hell is DUI's on kayaks and canoes protecting people, when people are breaking into my car, and stealing my shit. Really, how much damage can a kayak do?
Yea dude it's called a BUI.. Boating under the influence
My roomate just found this out last week after we bought our first kayaks haha
I really, really, really hope you learned that the hard way.
Well this makes sense because you could tip over and be to drunk and get caught underneath.
Whether or not this is true depends on your jurisdiction. In Europe they can take your license if you ride a bicycle drunk.
The legal BAC limit there is also .05% instead of our .08%.
Good to know, not that I would ever try it.
@FistedSister: I completely agree however if you had seen the condition of my room mates knees, forehead, elbows and black eyes after she biked through 4 venues of a bicycle pub crawl, you'd beg to differ. We had to take her home early coz she couldn't go one yard on the bike without ending up ass over tit, face planted on the sidewalk! It was hilarious. The bect day she asked me if she'd been in a fight. I said, "Your bike and the pavement beat the shit out of you." Am thinking the B
Thumbs up for drinking on the boat thumbs down on getting caught
Is a canoo stil fine
I guess you can get a DUI from drunkenly driving a go-kart, too? Because that was so fun...
Dude, cops are ripin you off, a DUI is when your in a motor vehicle and im assuming it was body power opperating the kayak :P the most they can charge you with is public intoxication if theres no motor
My ex-boyfriend got a DUI on a jetskii. Lol.
Is this a thumbs up or a thumbs down?
I think if I got a DUI on am unmotorized boat I wud just laugh. U would have to be having a darn good time to be drunk on one of those babies:) new goal
You CAN get a DUI on a Kayak... I work with the Natural Resources Police in MD and YES!!! you can get one and its called OUI! Operating Under the Influence.
This is bogus you can only get a DUI while operating a motorized vehical ie. Car boat lawn mower
This is false, DUI can't b givin on somthing other than a motored vehicle, all these claims of bycycle, horse, etc are all fake
This is NOT false. DUI's can absolutely be given out if you are operating almost anything under the influence. My friend got one on a bicycle in wrightsville beach. It happens all the time actually. Their "reasoning" behind it is that if you are swerving and in the middle of the road you are endangering yourself by getting hit by a car. Like i assume a kayaker would be hit by a boat. Its pretty much just a bullshit law to get the city more money, but it is in no way fake.
Im on a boat! wait? dui!? for fckn wat!
Wrong. It must be motorized before they can DWI you.
