Yes, you can get a DWI on a tractor. But that isn't all
There is a common misconception with the term “drinking and driving.”
Most people automatically assume drinking behind the wheel means strictly using a car. According to Tangi Carter, that isn’t the case.
Mississippi recognizes all types of motorized vehicles for DUI purposes. Cars, Trucks, Four wheelers, Go-carts, Motorcycles, Golf carts, even Riding lawn mowers,and anything which is motorized ,qualifies as a vehicle for DUI arrests. Exempted from consideration would be horses, bicycles (not motorized) hot air balloons, skate boards, and other conveyances.
It is not wise to drink and drive regardless of your mode of transportation.
Always be sure to get a designated driver, an Uber, or a taxi.
