*Approximately half of children’s journeys were made on foot
*80% of 7- and 8-year-old children got to school unaccompanied by an adult
• 30% of children under ten years old are allowed to travel
alone to places (other than school) within walking distance
• 9% of 7- and 8-year-old children got to school
unaccompanied by an adult, whilst levels of car ownership and use were fairly similar
Why don’t we see this for what it is? A heist! We have STOLEN children’s freedom! They are transported from locked space to locked space like prisoners. And we are expected to be their jailers.
