CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - A pilot program by sobriety courts in two Arkansas counties will allow those with suspended driver’s licenses to borrow bicycles for transportation.

Conway Planning and Development Deputy Director Wes Craiglow tells the Log Cabin Democrat (https://bit.ly/1UDWTfT ) that those who have a suspended license often have a family to support and may find it more difficult to do so without a vehicle to get to their job or to a grocery store.

Craiglow is seeking bike donations for the effort in Faulkner and Van Buren counties.

Among the sobriety court’s requirements, participants must wear a bracelet that detects alcohol in the body and attend 90 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings within 90 days.

There are currently 11 participants in Faulkner County’s sobriety court and three in Van Buren County.
