Drunk walking is worse than driving?
Study: Pedestrian deaths often because of “drunk walking”
You follow Hoboken411 on Twitter, and you’ll see many updates involving pedestrians struck by cars. Happens pretty much daily in Hoboken. And the argument often has many sides, from “entitled” yuppies, too much texting while walking, or texting while driving, and more.
However, the USA Today had an article today that might have cracked the code: DRUNK WALKING is a huge factor leading to fatal pedestrian accidents. Hmm. New catch phrase for Hoboken? Most drunks per square mile?
“Friends don’t let friends walk drunk”
Per mile, drunk walking is more dangerous than drunk driving?
Have you listened to this podcast suggesting that per mile, you have a greater chance of getting severely hurt or killed walking drunk than you do driving drunk?
That’s not saying that drunk driving is a good idea, or you can’t hurt a whole lot more people in the process – but it sure is safe to assume you can put yourself in a lot of danger stumbling around like idiots especially in Hoboken!
Of course, to top it off – the people that live and visit the Mile Square have this incredibly high sense of entitlement which is even more exasperated when they’ve had too much to drink.
