The Army Substance Abuse Program warns that after a night out in the city, you might think that renting an e-scooter is a safer and more cost-effective way for you to get home. If you’ve been enjoying a few drinks, however, this line of thinking could be dangerous. Driving a rental scooter while drunk is just as dangerous as getting behind the wheel while intoxicated.
Under German law, a blood alcohol level of 0.05% is considered a DUI and subject to fines and loss of license. New drivers in Germany are banned from consuming alcohol altogether before driving.
The law applies to users of e-scooters, as well as cyclists and motorists.
