It is surprisingly not uncommon to read of those charged with DUI while operating wheelchairs. The rationale is that the wheelchairs are motorized vehicles.
Lawmakers in Tennessee have passed House Bill 3260 that defines any person using a motorized or non-motorized wheelchair as a pedestrian. Inversely that means the wheelchair is not a vehicle and the operator is not subject to driving under the influence in Tennessee.
