I suspect it will round up some of the ones with out standing warrants but I doubt if it will deter anyone else from drinking and driving.

One thing to think about next time you jump in your car after drinking all night...by the time its all over it would have cost a fraction of the price to call a limousine to pick you up.

Do you know anyone, who after a night of drinking, is thinking at all?

No...there are those that dont care and others who thought they would only have a couple drinks. I never drive my car to the bar. Always a bicycle or cab. If I go downtown I take the water Taxi across the bay and cab home.

No there are. In California you can be arrested for DUI on a bike but, the only person you risk hurting is yourself. A friend of mine that lives about 3/4 mile from my house was over for a party and he left late at night and decided to ride my bike instead of drive his car and the cops actually stopped him and started the whole we can take you to jail for this routine and my friend told them to give him a break he chose the bike instead of his car. They let him go...Im sure it happens at some of the college type beach cities but never heard of anyone arrested for DUI on a bike where I live.
