Blanket 20mph could give more parents the confidence to allow kids to walk to school. Research was published when schools broke up for the summer holidays, showing that less than half of children regularly walk to school.

Right To Ride to School

Right To Ride to School
CTC believes that all children should have the right to cycle to school. Yet in some schools backward policies mean many children are unable to cycle to school.

A doubling of cycling use in 10 years, coupled with a halving the in risks of cycling, would generate economic benefits of £3.5 billion and save 600,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide annually.
