Cherry blossoms are blooming, kids are on break and Northern Virginia residents who have been cooped up over the winter are coming out of hibernation. These are all good things, but the resurgence of mild weather and active men, women and children also presents at least one concern.
During the spring more so than in the winter, motor vehicles and pedestrians regularly share the roadways. Biking and walking outdoors make for good exercise, happy family times and even saved money for those who commute to work by foot or bicycle. This list of pedestrian pros, however, is offset when so many pedestrian accidents occur every year.
