3trivia Trivia Small Class: Is it illegal in Germany to get drunk when riding a bicycle?
Germany is a bicycle kingdom, almost one person. In Germany, if you drink alcohol (blood alcohol concentration is more than 1.6%), it is a very serious matter to get caught on a bicycle. Not only will the relevant agencies confiscate your driver’s license, but you may also face jail time. There are also red lights, and there are high fines for playing mobile phones while riding bicycles.
