Default DUI what happens?

I was asked this question on my fb page and I am not sure of the answer. The actually question was "if someone has a dui can they still compete in a tractor/truck pull?" My answer was they cannot as it is public property. Now the complicated part. Can a person who has a dui breaking the law by cutting their own grass with a riding lawnmower? Another person also asked if a person could drive their own car drunk as long as they stayed on their own property.

Anyone have any answers to the questions?

Operation of a vehicle on Private Property isn't governed by the HTA.

My understanding is that it only applies to a licensed motor vehicle. I know that for example, ebikes, which do not require a license, may be driven on public highways by those who have lost their license. This has been a bit of a controversy in some areas.

So in the case of a lawn mower, there is no issue, private property or no. Unless the vehicle you are driving is required to be licensed, or it is not permitted on the roads, then you are fine, whether is is private property or not.

well I was half right kinda...lol

Any municipal by-law prohibiting bicycles from highways under their jurisdiction also apply to e-bikes. Municipalities may also pass by-laws specific to e-bikes that prohibit them from municipal roads, sidewalks, bike paths, bike trails, and bike lanes under their jurisdiction.

I didn't say "major"; all public roadways are "highways."

Thanks for the article, Slughead, those were a lot of the issues I was thinking about.
