Safer bikeways would reduce rush hour before and after school

In each of the 13 elementary schools in the Valley it takes up to 150 cars to transport the students to and from school. The biggest safety and health hazard for kids who walk or cycle to school is the traffic chaos created by all these cars. Building safer bikeways so at least half of these kids can ride their bikes to school would eliminate a large portion of the morning and afternoon rush hours in our Valley. This is just one example of how effective cycling can be to reduce the need for more or wider roads for cars.
