Who Knew That Using Your Feet To Get Around In Maryland Could Be So Dangerous?
Walking to get from one place to the next is a great choice for people all across the globe. For one, it gets them out from in front of the TV and moving. After all, who couldn’t stand to stretch their legs, other body parts, and workout? Even if the activity isn’t strenuous, it is better than nothing. Everything is about becoming a healthier and happier you today, and walking can help.
Another excellent reason to be a pedestrian is to do your part in stopping global warming. Of course, there is some controversy surrounding this subject, as some folks consider it only to be a myth. However, there is no denying that summers and winters seem to be getting warmer. Walking eliminates the need for a person to drive everywhere. Hence, harmful gasses and fumes aren’t sent into the atmosphere.
Still, though, walking can be quite a dangerous venture too. All it takes is for one driver to be negligent for peoples’ lives to be altered forever. Such acts often include speeding, texting, or driving under the influence of drugs/alcohol. Unfortunately, when these types of collisions occur, the outcome usually isn’t pleasant for pedestrians. Their skin and bones are no match for metal, fiberglass, rubber, and glass. These incidents take place frequently. Just take a gander at some of the recent headlines from the area.
