One of the things that tend to get people killed a great deal is they haven't got enough patience when it comes to dealing with the dead. These suckers have all the time in the world, but if you understand their basic behavior, you can get yourself out of some fairly ugly situations.
Zombies don't see very well, and if they needed glasses before they turned, they can't see any better when they're dead. If you are far enough away from a zombie that they can't smell you, you can pretty much walk away without too much trouble.
Zombies are typically weaker than you. The only time you might have trouble is with a recently turned big person. They will have some residual strength in the muscles and can make trouble if they grab you. Broken fingers can't grab.
While the basic laws of physiology went out the door with the Enillo Virus, the basics laws of physics must still be obeyed. Zombies can be tripped, their elbows and knees only go one way, and they will break their necks when they fall from high places.
On the down side, their strength is in numbers, and there are still lots of them out there. Don't be stupid, check your six, and make sure you have an exit. Always assume there's a zombie around every corner, and keep your weapons ready.
Don't rush out to meet them, unless that's the best tactical solution. Let them come to you, and make them work at it.
