Some Things Just Shouldn't Require a Car Trip
Kristin Jeffers laments the fact that her polling place isn't within walking distance of her home: "seriously, should he have had to risk his life to cross a major street to vote? Unless a person can’t physically walk, we shouldn’t have to drive people to the polls." Inspired by the difficulty in accessing this basic requirement of democracy, Jeffers compiled a list of other facilities that should be located and accessible within walking distance for all residents.
The list includes schools and a few other facilities, which, Jeffers points out, are becoming easier to connect with surrounding neighborhoods via technology and, in many cases, house in one place.
Would you add any facilities to the list provided by Jeffers?
