One of the most difficult thing that happens to a person when they are arrested for a DUI is that their license will be suspended. In fact, through the course of a DUI, a license can be suspended twice. The first suspension comes from the DMV for either refusing to blow or blowing over .08. The second suspension comes from the court if you are convicted of DUI.
How Can You Get Around While Your Licenses Is Suspended for DUI?
One relatively new trend are e-bikes. An e-bike is defined as a motorized bicycle under Florida Statutes FS 316.003. "Every vehicle propelled solely by human power, and every motorized bicycle propelled by a combination of human power and an electric helper motor capable of propelling the vehicle at a speed of not more than 20 miles per hour on level ground upon which any person may ride, having two tandem wheels, and including any device generally recognized as a bicycle though equipped with two front or two rear wheels."
The key is this bicycle can't go more than 20 miles an hour. Otherwise it may be considered a moped, which requires a license.
Are E-bikes Functional for the Street?
There are all different types of e-bikes. Some look like traditional bicycles, some even look like motorcycles. They all have pedals, and you can assist the bike by pedaling, but with a fully charged bike, you don't have to.
Check these bikes out:
