UK Coronavirus: physical distancing and intoxication don't mix

Pubs across England officially reopened. Lockdown restrictions are being eased more and more. UK police are warning that physical distancing rules should be strictly respected. Britons should grab a pint safely. Physical distancing and intoxication don't mix.

There is a problem with people being drunk. They can't even always walk in a straight line. The Walk and Turn Test is an interesting test to see how drunk a person is. The walk and turn test is a standardized field sobriety test (FST) that police frequently administer in order to detect whether a person is under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. During the walk and turn test, the person is ordered to take nine heel-to-toe steps along a straight line.

Doctors use the term vertigo to describe this spinning, revolving form of dizziness. Some people describe the feeling as if they were walking on a mattress or walking on a soft surface like cotton wool. You could feel tipsy or drunk. Some drunk people could be shaking left and right. It's easy to accidentally bump into other people.

Drunk walking involves people intoxicated by alcohol walking in public spaces.

Some interesting ways to know you're drunk:

When you stand up, it feels like you're on a boat.
When you look in the mirror, you don't even recognize yourself.
Your phone becomes a complicated Rubik's cube.
You start taking off clothes for no real reason.
Rolling on the floor becomes fun and exciting.
You puke.
