BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Boozed-up bicycle and horse riders still have to worry about being prosecuted under North Dakota drunken driving laws.

Senators killed a House bill 26-19 Wednesday that would exempt riders of horses and bicycles from drunken driving laws.

The legislation would have still allowed riders on horses and bicycles to be charged with non-criminal offenses such as speeding or other traffic violations.
