The rider of an electric-powered bicycle added to the list of accidents involving this mode of transport when he collided with a bus at the Portier roundabout while riding his own machine, rather than a rented one.

Monaco Criminal Court heard that the 38 year-old Monegasque was seriously drunk and escaped with only minor injuries in the incident at 15:40 on the afternoon of June 24.

The culprit, and only victim of the accident, had consumed several glasses of Campari and a few glasses of wine at Monaco Bowling Club, local French-language daily Monaco Matin reported.

The employee of SBM, who works in the Casino, had a clean criminal record, and was sentenced to pay a fine of 2,000 euros.
