Is this a fair comparison?

    I hope she walked home! I look around where ever I am too, visual skills are visual skills. Nothing wrong with being aware of your surroundings, no matter where you are.

    Very true! I have these exact same thoughts, almost as if I was interviewed for this article! And just so you know, you are not alone , I too watch the “intersections” in the stores!

  3. I know some carts can be difficult, I often tend to find ones with stuck wheels, impossible to steer well. However grocery stores and chain stores are often overcrowding aisles with skids or displays and there simply is not room for more than 1 person/cart to move through anywhere.
    If I were ever a fire marshall, so many places would be fined and/or reprimanded, we have to have the ability as citizens to leave a facility safely, filling aisles with skids prevents that.
    With a cart that has 4 good wheels I drive them pretty well, but there’s always someone (inobservant of course) that stops in your path and you whack their feet. I know they are not noisy, but they are not silent either.
    You should discuss Blocked Intersections and why staying back is safer. Even though I did that, an impatient Motorist hit me anyway as he felt he was impeded despite having nowhere to go.

    You are not alone Scott. I do this all the time. I compare eveything to driving. Walking in general should use the same concepts and there would never be a problem. For example walk on the right pass on the left! Enter a store on the right leave on the left! Simple concepts right? These days common sence is not so common. I think the only way to improve these behaviours is to start teaching our kids and maybe one day they’re communities will be safer! I hope 🙂
