Breaking down the barriers. The Olympian hurdles faced by children in walking to school

A report to mark the launch of National Walking Month May 2011
To mark the start of National Walking Month 2011, national charity Living Streets has surveyed over two thousand children and young people between the ages of seven and 14 from across the United Kingdom to
find out first hand how they view walking to school. They have produced a very interesting short report highlighting why the current generation of children has lost the 'walking habit' and the future implications for the health of these children as a result.

These are just two of the survey results that highlight why we must Save the Lollipop People

• Over a third (36%) are scared about walking to school because of speeding traffic.
• One in fi ve children and young people are concerned about the lack of safe crossing points on
their journey to school
