Why should car drivers be the only ones with a set of gauges
and controls to help them navigate the city streets?
Many pavements are now heaving racetracks of humanity, with
folk bumping into each other, collapsing because they have
underestimated their journeys and wilted due to lack of
Pedestrian Dashboard would solve all of this and
more. Pedestrian Dashboard would have it all. Naturally a
speedometer would be central, but would be joined by a
clock, mileometer, GPS, heart monitor, and blood sugar meter
together with indicators and a horn to facilitate safe turns,
and clearing unexpected interruptions. There would be a
variety of styles and finishes from the sedate splendour of
polished walnut, to the racy "brat boy" with complimentary
bull bars. Other versions could be customised for police,
medical etc. with sirens, flashing lights et all.

||Better include a test - Here in the UK you can take a Cycling Proficiency course, so why not pedestrian? Bun, I think. :)
