Communities and schools are using the second annual “Walk and Bike to School Day” to promote healthier ways to get to school our around the neighborhood.

 

Kim Curley with Commute Options says one of the problems is people not observing the lower speed limits in school zones.

 

"The deal on 20 miles an hour is: i know that folks who aren't pedestrians, they don realize that there's a big, big difference between 30 and 20 especially if you strike an object. So that object has a much better chance of living and being healthy if you're going 20 compared to you going 10 miles over that."

 

The month of May is "Walk and Bike to School Month" but today, Curley says, they hope a lot of people will participate in the special day.

 

She says there are other ways to get to school or around town- and there are plenty of ideas on the Commute Options website.
