Dominique: Thoughts on SRTS Conference, barriers to walking and biking

“Coming to the conference I expected to learn more about safer routes to schools. I came out of the conferences with more ideas on healthy living and most people rode on bicycles and it was just so neat and organized.

Walking to school in the Fifth Ward there is broken glass over the overpass. And the gate is broken and the abandoned houses look very dirty in the community and the sidewalks are very cracked and crumbled up. I just wish the city would do something about it.”
