Here's a tip: Walk like penguins on ice

Are you hoping to avoid slipping on a slippery sidewalk?

In Germany, trauma surgeons advised the public on Wednesday to walk like penguins to avoid slipping on pavements with freezing temperatures forecast nationwide over the next few days.

An advisory published on the website of the German Society of Orthopaedics and Trauma Surgery said that walking like the aquatic birds involves leaning the torso forward so that the center of gravity is on the front leg.
