Travelling to school in a car can cause noise and air pollution, as well as lots of traffic jams.
Walking or cycling to school is a much better way to travel because it:
- helps you keep fit and healthy;
- allows you to chat with friends;
- helps you learn road safety skills;
- means there are fewer traffic jams;
- lets you enjoy the local environment and see the changing seasons first hand;
- makes the roads near school safer as there are less cars around to be involved in accidents with.
