August 26, 2015: Party Bikes Gain Approval in Michigan
There is a new type of party in town. Michigan lawmakers
recently approved the use of "party bikes" within the State
, as long as the operator who steers and brakes the vehicle stays sober.
Party bikes, called "quadricycles" under the new law, allow people to drink alcohol while cycling between destinations.
However, local governments are starting to step in. This week, Royal Oak approved the use of party bikes, but only
without allowing open alcoholic beverages on board
Anywhere party bikes are operated in Michigan, however, riders are required to bring their own alcohol. Operators will not be allowed to serve alcoholic beverages to users.
