My answer to Do you have an intentional style of walking, if so what do you want others to see in it?

Answer by Ken Larson:

I walk 6 miles daily in retirement to and from my volunteer work at the public library. My walking style is influenced by a 40 lb. backpack and a fishing pole.

On the trails in the Mississippi and Vermillion River Valleys on my way to work I wish others to simply see me as another old guy enjoying himself.

However, some of my journey takes me through city traffic. I simply wish others to see me period at that point of my journey.

I have found myself sprawled across the hood of a car after the driver turned right without looking to a green light crosswalk while talking on a cell phone. I have been cursed for being in the middle of the road in a clearly marked pedestrian right of way by a speeder late to work running a red light who had to brake to avoid killing me.

I could recount other similar near- miss incidents, too numerous to mention.

Autos, Entitlement and “The Technology Monkey”
