Make a change...

Expand your horizons: If you drive, why not car pool? If you carpool and drive, how about taking the T, all or part way?

Ride a bicycle and learn the laws (for your own safety). If the trip is too far to bike, you might take your bike on the train or bus. Going too slowly is not necessarily safer. Some sidewalks are multi-use; many are not.

If waiting for a bus, notice the bike lane. Look around before you cross, turn, open a door, change lanes or park and make sure the way is uninhabited.

Talking on a cell phone and text messaging en route make all forms of travel more dangerous.
