As a survivor of a near-fatal car accident (thanks to a seatbelt) and with all of the ad campaigns and information that is available today, it amazes me how many people choose not to wear one. Some of the excuses I have heard for why people neglect to wear them include: "It's too tight around my neck" or "I don't need to when I'm in the city - the speed limit isn't very high."
I came across this article that has some pretty scary stats about what can happen from not buckling up. Clearly, laws support seatbelt wearing for a reason.
I have always enjoyed going for walks. I walk to the bus stop, the grocery store, and now that I'm a dog owner, I walk anywhere from 2-3 hours a day. It's such a great way to get energized for the day or to unwind from the busy-ness of the daycare - there's the crisp fresh-air, the beautiful scenery, the gently chirping birds, and the... (squish!)... (moan)... dog poop that I just stepped in because someone didn't bother to pick up after their dog, AGAIN!
