German Town of Munster Bans Drunk Cycling in Effort to Curb Bicyclist Deaths

The town of Munster, 296 miles west of Berlin, has banned drunk cycling because of five deaths in 2011.

Munster is a college town plagued by drunken bicyclists if one is to believe a recent council measure passed revoking the license of any person caught biking under the influence. Previously, only motorists would face revocation if caught driving drunk, and if they wanted their license back, they would be subjected to a psychological examination. After five deaths in 2011, Munster has decided to treat biking under the influence in a similar manner.
