The government needs to remind people to drink more water than soda/grain alcohol, eat fruits and vegetables daily, get adequate sleep, and exercise regularly and not eat pre-packaged, hyper-processed deep-fried everything to their heart's content (and eventual collapse).

Maybe it's because I was raised with the salutory influence of grandparents who had graduated the practical schooling of the Depression and the Blitz, but when I witness how decimated our collective wits have become, it is hard to believe that there is any scrambling back up that slippery slope.

When anyone is injured in a collision of any sort, there are often many factors at play. Confirmation bias in reporting and consumption of news smooths out most of those complexities and makes objective reality hard to discern. I am all for humanized complete streets and lived for many years on Main, so I know that many of our streets are not optimized for all modes of transport. All the same, accidents happen. If you can easily adopt measures to avoid an accident, do so. We don't need more martyrs to convenience.
