Can be deadly:

Relatives and friends took Benjamin A. Wright's car keys at his 55th birthday party, saying he'd had too much to drink to get behind the wheel, but he still wound up dying in a traffic accident.

Not long after being told he should spend the night at his son's place, Wright said he was going outside for a smoke. Instead, he apparently began walking home and was fatally struck by a car about 10 p.m. Sunday in the eastbound lane of Highway 2, Police Chief Fred Walser said.
