A person can be charged with DUI while driving any motor vehicle. If you have been pulled over by a police officer while driving your motorcycle, the officer will likely be observing if you have difficulty getting off the bike, display any balance problems, if you were drifting between lanes, if you were weaving, and of course, if the Conyers or Rockdale County police officer (in his or her subjective opinion), feel that he or she has observed anything about your speech or appearance that is consistent with alcohol intoxication or drug use.
The officer may ask you a series of questions and to submit to field sobriety tests as well as roadside breath test to detect for the presence of alcohol. If the officer feels that had been driving your motorcycle under the influence, he or she can arrest you for DUI and the same .08 blood alcohol content limit and rules apply.
DUI cases can be challenged and beat. The stop may have been illegal in the first place. The roadside sobriety test may have been conducted improperly. The breath test may be inaccurate.
