New Report Sheds Light On America's Drinking While Biking Problem

(Undated) -- It looks like people riding bicycles while drunk is a significant problem in the U.S. A report from the Governors Highway Safety Association shows 25-percent of the cyclists killed across the country from 2010 through 2012 had blood alcohol levels of point-oh-eight or higher. An earlier study indicated those with the highest blood alcohol content among cyclists killed were usually middle-aged men riding in cities at nighttime. The report also notes not wearing a helmet is a major factor in cycling fatalities.
