Keep roads safe - breath test pedestriansJust to clarify, the current drink drive limit in the UK is 0.08. So four pints and you'd be over the 0.15 drink walking limit.
RANDOM breath testing of pedestrians would be the most effective way to stop them being killed and maimed on the roads, a study has found.
The University of Adelaide study found the public could support a blood alcohol limit of 0.15 when near roads and vehicles.
Or, drunk in charge of a pair of legs, as the offence would presumably be termed.
Researchers studied ways of reducing the road toll and found that all were "limited" in their success except for enforcement of a blood alcohol level in people walking near traffic.I suppose if you ever found yourself over the limit you could have a quick look out of the pub door. If no 'enforcement' officers are around you might get away with it by running home before they see you.
Or, just get in the car and drive instead, it'll be even quicker.
Hey, CAMRA members, remember when you told me that the righteous wouldn't come after you because, and I quote ...
... "there are many more people who drink than smoke"?I have begged to differ many times before, and will continue to do so.
The alcohol denormalisation express is fast approaching full speed.
