Minnesota drivers will likely notice more kids on the streets today (Wednesday) for Walk and Bike to School Day.  MnDOT’s Joseph Palmersheim says the goal is to take a day off from the school bus or carpool if possible:

“It really encourages parents, students, community members to think about and maybe even assess the walkability and bike-ability of their neighborhoods, how safe is it to travel on foot or on wheels when you’re not in a vehicle through this area.”

Palmersheim says around 175 Minnesota districts are participating today. Many schools have designated drop-off locations for students who take the bus.
