    C. in Fkt. I am a cyclist and I don't drink or use drugs. I ride about 3500 miles per year. I have had rocks, bottles and other items thrown at me and riders with me from cars and trucks. You need to educate yourself on Kentucky law. KRS 189.090 states that cyclists have the same right to the road as motor vehicles. I follow the rules of the road and I suggest that you do the same before you kill someone with your road rage. Yes you can be charged with DUI on a bicycle, scooter, riding mower or horse and this man should be. It might be what he needs to get his life togather. SHARE THE ROAD KENTUCKY.

    Can't he be charged with DUI? He was driving a bicycle. That's the problem with people on bicycle, they don't obey the laws and then get mad because people in cars don't respect them! This guy was just another idiot on a bike!

    Did this idiot have his head wrapped with duct tape?

    Absolutely no sympathy is going to go out to him from me because I feel that is what he deserves for drinking and driving.

    Does this mean he'll get a BUI? Seriously, even drunk, how do you hit a train on a bike?
