One in five pedestrians killed has had a few too many. However, just because they’re not aware doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take care.
Drivers, Rules 204-210 of The Highway Code are clear that you should watch out for vulnerable pedestrians and other vulnerable road users, which includes those walking home after a night out.
• Slow down! You can never control the consequences if you speed.
• Always pay attention and stay alert. One lapse can last a lifetime.
• Always watch out for pedestrians, especially those walking home after a night out.
Pedestrians, you also have a responsibility to ensure you are safe especially if you’ve been out drinking. So plan your way home. Book a taxi or a designated driver to get home safely.
