A couple nights ago, not too far from Montreal, a drunk man walked out of a bar and stumbled into the street late at night. He got mowed down in the street. It seems to me that if the driver that hit him was really paying attention he or she could have driven defensivly and slowed down to avoid the "accident". The driver probably was not actually paying any attention, but they were not speeding which seems to be all the police look for these days.
No charges were laid.
