I agree with the judge. Ticket idiocy. Wonder if he was wearing a helmut?

I agree it is stupid to drink and ride your bike, but this has to be the funniest line in the piece.

"Ruiz [the judge] disagreed, noting that the plain language of the statute is clear, that a vehicle is "any appliance moved over a highway on wheels or traction tread, including street cars, draft animals, and beasts of burden."

I am going to have to remember not to drink next time I take my ass out for a ride!

disagree completely, judge is completely over the line.

i'll agree when the judges actually hold drivers responsible for the death of a cyclist they kill, rather than label it "an unfortunate accident" and not charge the driver at all.
