How to use agile in a sentence?

  1. Susan Michie:

    Think about it as road safety -- we have to do our own risk assessment when crossing the road, for example, do we always cross the road just on the traffic lights or on zebra crossings, or do we occasionally cross it elsewhere ? If we do, we probably consider several things, such as how far away are the cars, what speed are they traveling at, are the roads wet, how agile am I ?

It was a bit like a medium sized dog, very slender, very long-tailed to help it balance as it moved.
