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. He didn’t reject it. Whether he drank it or not, I don’t know. Hope he did as it was very hot and he was in full riot gear.

Luddite and HollisBrown - take the wider view (pun intended). Not everyone can, or wants to, wear contacts. Especially older users, who these seem to be intended for, who may have more issues inserting contacts.

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?
