Legal limits only apply to drivers. Not pedestrians - or passengers

Yabbut... over 30% of pedestrians killed in car accidents have alcohol in their systems. A couple of years ago there was a campaign designed to raise awareness of the dangers of.... being a drunk pedestrian.

I know for a fact that pedestrians can be charged with “PUI” (pedestrian under the influence) in Georgia, and probably some other states as well. (I’m an auto claims adjuster).

And I have seen several situations where pedestrians with alcohol in their systems were deemed to be comparatively negligent and thus barred from recovery (in jurisdictions where that’s allowed).
