A 30 minute brisk walk every week poses very little health risk.

Walking is a simple, low-impact activity that people of almost any age can do to help stay in shape, but there are still dangers. In order to keep yourself safe as a pedestrian, there are a few rules of thumb you need to keep in mind. This is doubly true if you find yourself walking on the road itself, and not on a footpath or sidewalk. To keep yourself safe while you're out walking, remember these rules:

• Face Traffic

• Cross the Street Safely

•Walk Single File

• Be Aware of Runners and Cyclists

• Make Sure You are Visible

• Move Predictably

• Don't Blast Music

• Put your Phone Away

• Keep Your Dogs on a Short Leash

• Don't Overdo It

• Watch Out for Strangers
