Friends Don't Let Friends Walk Drunk
Here's a interesting fact: drinking and walking is more dangerous than drinking and driving. Not, of course, to others, but it is to yourself. If you are drunk and you live one mile from home, if you choose to walk rather than drive home, you are 8 times more likely to die than if you drove home. How's that for unconventional wisdom?
The moral of the story? If you must drink, don't drive, don't walk. Instead, get someone (who is sober) to drive you home. If you want to learn more, click on the following link of the Freakonomics podcast, "The Perils of Drunk Walking" (it's only 6 minutes long).
