"While there has been a 48 per cent reduction in the number of child pedestrian injuries in the last ten years, the number of adults being killed or injured is rising.

The figures show that almost half of all drunk revellers fail to properly use a zebra crossing at night.

Richard Owen, operations director for safer roads, said that the growing number in accidents is worrying but it can be particularly concerning around the festive period.

'At this time of year there is always a big focus on drink driving but drunk pedestrians are also a serious concern,' he said.

'Shockingly one in eight pedestrians who are killed or seriously injured on our roads are drunk at the time of the crash.'

As the video ends it points out that 98 per cent of the pedestrians used the zebra crossing correctly when the nearly naked lollipop people were on duty.

Richard added that this experiment proves that people who are intoxicated can be encouraged to pay attention to road safety.

'It can be very hard to connect with young adults, especially if they have been drinking, but what we have clearly demonstrated here is that their behaviour can be influenced if we can find the right means.' "
