Cars stop in front of the school and both kids and parents inside are on their phones… I wonder if they are talking together or with the car?
“We’re at the school”
Text and drawing by Frits Ahlefeldt
Kids in more and more parts of the world are more often than not being driven to school instead of walking now
I was drawing up solutions for smart cities at a conference and the planners said they made paths between the housing areas and the school, but most parents were not aware of them… Driving their kids they had never wondered if there was an alternative.
So the school started arranging “walking buses” picking up the kids a few minutes from the school and learning the kids and their parents how to get to the school on foot, often even faster than in the cars
