Drunk walking is a risk factor for pedestrian–motor vehicle collisions.[1] It is less studied than,[2] and often overshadowed by, the dangers of drunk driving.[1] U.S. government data from 2008 reported that 36% of pedestrians killed in motor vehicle crashes had a blood alcohol content over 0.08.[2] In Australia, drunk walking was estimated to account for about 140 deaths a year.[3]
