That's because more people walk to work more often. A per capita comparison would be more accurate.

As to the insults, when you make a statement on the forum, no-one is obligated to agree with you. I think it was a dumb statement as well. I'd probably phrase it a little better... But yeah people know their limitations and don't need helmets just like they know their liquor capacity and don't need to take a taxi.

I told my kids, "Someday, you'll have kids of your own." One of them said, "So will you."
