New York Times trumpets safe routes schools

In acknowledgement of Walk to School events happening throughout the month of October, the New York Times laments the national decline in the number of students who walk or bike to school. Noting the range of problems this shift has caused—increased behavioral and learning problems in the classroom, traffic congestion near schools, higher rates of injury and fatality for those who are driven to school in a passenger vehicle—the Times issues a call to action for promoting health and safety through safe routes to school.
