File This One Under “D” for DOH!

Thanks to everyone who read our blog and joined us on a London Walk today.


The full programme for tomorrow can be found at www.walks.com.


Just before we swap our walking boots for our slippers, here’s one final thought…






File This One Under “D” for DOH!


This morning on Twitter we had a gentle go at cyclists and their wily ways…





Now here’s one for the “Walking Community”: Put down that phone!

Here’s how they’re reporting the phenomena of “Distracted Walking” (!) on wboy.com in West Virginia…


Headphones in, and heads down is a scene you can see all across the country, and it's especially a problem at universities.

"Pedestrians and cars, and there aren't too many people who win when that collision happens," said WVU Police Chief Bob Roberts. "So it's really important for pedestrians to be more alert."

(Doh: Ed.)

The National Highway Safety Transportation Association said in 2010, more than 150,000 people were injured in a pedestrian-vehicle accident, and fatal incidents are on the rise too.

Roberts said incidents are on the rise because many people aren't paying attention.

(Guess what? Doh: Ed.)
