Definition - What does Vehicle mean?

A vehicle can be any type of device which is used to transport persons or cargo. Under state's DUI laws it is illegal to operate a motorized vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Under the influence is assumed if a driver's BAC is 0.08% or higher or if the driver is unable to safely operate the vehicle due to mental or physical impairments.

Vehicles can include cars, trucks, airplanes, motorized scooters, motorcycles, heavy construction equipment, farm equipment, tractors and boats. Generally a vehicle, with regards to DUI laws, can be anything that is propelled by a motor rather than by human exertion.
