Active/Safe Routes to School

Over the past two decades, school commuting patterns have changed. In Canada, neighbourhood schools report more than 50% of the student body are frequently chauffeured to school by parents. Some are beginning to question both the short and long term consequences of these practices. There are serious traffic safety concerns associated with this trend that have significant impacts on children and youth, their parents, families and communities at large. Traffic injuries are already the leading cause of serious injury and death among school-aged children and youth. The purpose of this important report is to review child/youth risk factors associated with active transportation to and from school and to develop recommendations to promote safe routes.
