Scooter Rental A Good Idea?

So, let's say you are at a bar with some friends and you know you have had
perhaps more than one too many and are definitely not OK to drive. 
You think about calling a cab or Uber but you remember that there is a 
scooter rental place just down the street. You sit back, relax again 
with your friends and order another drink. You will just rent a scooter 
and scoot on home after the festivities.

Given the recent conviction of a man operating a scooter drunk, it makes 
us step back and ask ourselves, what exactly is a vehicle under the eyes 
of the law?

In California, for example, a vehicle is defined and something that is 
motorized, or self-propelled be something that is not human. So, yes, 
you guessed it, riding a horse drunk om a public thoroughfare is a crime 
in California!

Think twice before you operate anything under the influence. It's not 
just vehicles. You could hurt yourself trying to work on your car, too! 
If you live in Burlington, Essex, Colchester, Winooski, Williston, 
Shelburne or anywhere in the State of Vermont, and have been arrested or 
charged with DUI or any crime, call Handy Law for aggressive and 
experienced legal defense.
