Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs

The University prohibits the operation of a motor vehicle while intoxicated or impaired by alcohol, drugs, or any controlled substance. “Driving under the influence” is defined as a situation in which the operator of any vehicle, including bicycles and all other motorized and non-motorized vehicles, is determined to be driving such vehicle under the influence of any combination of intoxicating liquor, an inhalant, and/or a controlled substance which may alter, inhibit, or impair a person’s condition of thought and action. This determination may be made through an admission, as a result of a blood alcohol content test, or by commonly accepted behavioral observations (e.g., slurred speech, staggering).
