I keep seeing fat people including myself get out of their automobiles. Reminds me of the movie ‘Wall-e‘.
I love walkable communities.
Simi Valley where I reside with my family is marginally walkable, bikeable. California Bicycle Laws give right of way to bicycles and automobiles equally. Most people are not aware of this. Even in Massachusetts, I’ve been hit in the head by bottles thrown at me from automobiles.
Walking aka being a pedestrian is good for us. The reason roads were paved initially was for velocipedes aka old-time bicycles. Where I came from, Massachusetts, Bicycles and Motor vehicles had equal right to the roadway. If a motor vehicle was stuck behind a bicycle, then it must pass safely. It seems that California encourages bicycle riders to hang out in the door and glass zone which isn’t good.
As humans, we are generally engineered by God for walking. Sitting all the time in automobiles, couches, barcalounger etc isn’t good for us.
I write this while I watch the movie “In Harms Way” on Netflix, but I’m going out for a walk shortly.
