    It’s great you mentioned how important it is for people to make sure that whatever surface they’re walking on is a transition area–meaning these are places that people have a tendency to have accidents and where people might lose their footing. It’s important to identify where these areas are because they’re accident-prone areas, and nobody would want to get involved in an accident of any kind. If I had known that there were some places in the house that I was going to buy that were safety hazards I would’ve thought twice before actually buying them.
