Admittedly, sometimes the helpful tips from the National Safety Council make me laugh. They are good reminders of some really common sense ideas. Week 3 is about being alert. We have blogged about distracted driving, but distracted walking?
Turns out that distracted walking is on the rise for people of all ages. Yes, we are walking in to signs, traffic and other hazards because we honestly believe we can walk and text, talk or email at the same time. In reality, we can't.
The local community has seen its share of pedestrian accidents. Ocean City has taken it a step further with their Pedestrian Safety: Walk Smart Campaign
- Use the crosswalks!
- Use the sidewalks!
- Don't text/email/call and walk!
Have a safe and happy summer – Be Alert
