    I love a good “up yours” graphic for driving, but when there’s confusing information it sucks the air out. What does “If walking costs you a $1” mean?

  • CalRobert

    That’s interesting, but why would walking cost me $1? Calories consumed, perhaps? The only footbridge that I can think of charging tolls is the ha’penny, and those were abolished a century ago.

    I do know that when I had a 30 minute walk to and from work I went through shoes more quickly, so maybe that’s worth noting. Of course, I also reduced the likelihood of relying on state medical services down the road by increasing my level of fitness, so there’s that.
