According to the Washington Post, a proposed bill would target people riding a bike, an “electric personal assistive mobility device, electric power-assisted bicycle, or moped” on a highway while intoxicated.
If passed, offenders would face a Class 2 misdemeanor. That could mean that at least six months in the pokey and a fine of up to $1,000, or both. Ouch. That's kind of harsh.
The Virginia Biking Federation, said, while they're not opposed to the bill, they don't see a lot of wasted bicyclists.
