There is something satisfying about walking in the middle of the road. You own it. It’s fun. It’s doing something your really aren’t supposed to do.

Before cars dominated our lives, we could walk anywhere without much fear of being creamed by a speeding hunk of metal. Horses and mules that pulled our carts and carriages did not particularly want to crash into us. They had eyes and could make decisions about when to stop or veer. The original self-driving vehicles.

When land cars are replaced by drones we’ll be able to walk on roads again.
