And if you are drunk, even walking, let alone cycling home, can be another bad decision. One 29-year-old male just overbalanced on the footpath and fell on to the road. The car coming towards him only barely stopped in time.
In fact, every night an ambulance gets called to a male cyclist who is drunk and has been hit by a car or just lost control of himself and crashed.
I definitely won't be cycling anywhere this Christmas. Just getting home sober has been enough of a challenge this week - what with the drunken pedestrians weaving hopelessly all over the footpaths at 4 in the afternoon. It must be a bloody shocker by 10pm.
