Tonight’s walk was pretty much just in Bridgewater—-no Somerville. I just felt safer this way, and the only major crosswalk I had to deal with, was one where I personally had input on the design. (It is several feet east of where it was originally going to be marked.)

For the moment, Somerville just seems like too risky a walker town. Sorry, my odds are probably an equal chance tonight as any other prior night (so scientifically, it should still be an “acceptable risk”.) But I am not sure what those odds are, and previously it looks like I underestimated them.

Unfortunately, this also extends to any unnecessary side trips in by car. So a few businesses will be getting a little less in the coffers for a while . . .
