Can I get a DUI on a bicycle?

Most people understand from a young age that it is both dangerous and illegal to drink and drive an automobile. Not only does drinking and driving pose significant dangers to individuals who drink and drive, it also results in criminal charges quite regularly. What many people do not understand is that DUI charges are not necessarily restricted to automobiles. In some cases, an individual can receive criminal charges for riding a bicycle if they are impaired.

Be careful what you say in a DUI stop

Drinking and driving is never a good idea, but individuals still choose to get behind the wheel after drinking each and every day. Should you find yourself pulled over by police after drinking, you must be careful in what you say and do. Police officers have a great responsibility to protect the community, just as you have a responsibility to protect your own rights. So, how should you respond when the officer begins asking questions?

Restrictions on gun ownership

Owning guns in America is a complicated issue, and one that many people feel very strongly about. Depending on the state in which you live, gun laws may be more strict or more lax, but some requirements or restrictions exist at the federal level, too. Certain types of firearms and firearm accessories or devices require passing background checks and registry with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF). Failure to comply with the law may lead to serious consequences and even jail time.

What if I open someone else's mail?

We often take the postal service for granted, or even view it with annoyance for filling our mailboxes with loads of advertisements that we'll never read. However, the postal service is still an important institution, one with a surprising amount of power as a federal entity. To this end, crimes involving the postal service are generally federal offenses. Only in some certain circumstances is opening someone else's mail acceptable.

When is drunk driving not drunk driving?

Drunk driving charges are difficult to face, and in some cases, may come as a complete surprise. While most of us think of drunk driving as occurring when someone is physically operating a vehicle in motion while the driver is intoxicated, not all of these elements must necessarily be present in all cases. Depending on the details of the circumstances, an officer may give out drunk driving charges to someone who is not necessarily "driving" in the sense we think of it from day to day.
