Backs Safe Routes to School

To the editor:

I support the use of Department of Transportation funds to support the Safe Routes to School program. Allowing children safe and efficient ways to use active transportation to school not only is good short term health, but also builds a solid foundation of activity that kids will carry with themselves for their entire lives. Less screen time, more physical activity and better nutrition will improve the health of this generation of kids.

Please support Safe Routes to School.
