Next time you visit Spain, be sure not to over-imbibe, even if you’re planning to walk back to your hotel.

In a surprising new proposal, the Directorate General of Traffic in Spain has proposed that walking while intoxicated could result in fines for the pedestrian if they are involved in an accident.

Included in this proposal was one for a pedestrian speed limit, which would be as fast as a normal stride.

Who wants to take bets on whether or not these proposals will pass?
