Is Walking To School A Thing Of The Past?

A new study reveals that nearly three-quarters of trips by today's kids are made in cars.

"Compared with a generation ago, when most of California's children walked or biked to school, nearly three-quarters of trips by today's kids are made in cars, a new study has found. The study, released Wednesday, concludes that transportation options for California's children have narrowed dramatically since the 1960s and '70s, burdening parents with driving responsibilities and increasing traffic congestion."
