Bike and Walk to School Day in Minnesota

(Undated) — Drivers should watch for extra kids on the streets this morning (Wednesday) as Minnesota students are participating in Bike and Walk to School Day. MnDOT’s Joseph Palmersheim says, “this is a chance for students to learn how to walk and bike in a safe way along with their peers or in group settings which are generally safer ways to learn how to cross a street or to navigate the bike/pedestrian infrastructure in the town they are in.” More than 130 schools in the state are participating in Bike to School Day events.
