Proper pedestrian walking

To the Editor:

Vehicle pedestrian accidents are a common news item. And no wonder, when I see people walking along the road with their backs to the traffic.

I was taught in the first grade to always walk facing the traffic. That way when a driver is impaired or just goofing off you can at least take some evasive action. You couldn't pay me to do otherwise.

I think it is time for the schools to teach children this important safety precaution. It would save many injuries and lives.
