      This is a red herring, as a) it is not illegal to walk while impaired
      (how does the impaired person, who is abandoning his car, get to a taxi
      or bus?) and b) it makes no reference to other factors that might have
      contributed to the collision.

      A severely impaired pedesrtians, usually, is very visibly so, which
      makes him/her as "off'limits" to drivers as disable, elderly, and very
      young pedestrians.
