I agree that many roads around schools are dangerous, but if more children walked there would be less traffic. To encourage this, more local authorities should support projects such as "Safe Routes to School" and "Feet First". These help children work out what would make them feel safer when walking to school or whether cycling is possible. For the car-conditioned, help can be given to demonstrate that walking is possible and that, provided basic road safety is instilled in the child, walking is as safe as anything can be.
