Pedestrian safety

Better to walk against the traffic

Regarding the Oct. 21 article, "Sidewalk shortage creates unsafe passage for students": I see on the front page, no less, the picture of children walking blissfully to school, with a large truck approaching them from behind, which they are totally unaware of.
If they were to walk facing the oncoming lane of traffic, as I was taught, they might have some chance of not being run over. Yes, they may have to cross the street, but much better than having any car hit you from behind that is only a few feet from your walking path. That white line painted on the pavement will not protect you.
