I gave a bottle of cold water to a cop on guard duty (against those noisy trucks shouting at an embassy) and he accepted it. He didn’t take it in his hand, but I set it down near him.

From what I’ve been able to learn, neither children or adults are taught to walk facing traffic rather than with the traffic flow. They were struck from behind. Walking, facing traffic, gives the pedestrian the ability to see oncoming traffic or danger. Why isn’t this basic safety concept taught?
