Exclusion zones around schools13th August 2007
A new report has called for exclusion zones to be set up around schools to force children and parents to walk to their classes.
The Institute for European Environmental Policy has blamed over-use of cars for adding to the global warming crisis and the obesity epidemic. The IEEP study found the amount of walking fell from two hours a week to just one when households started using a car and that banning cars around schools would help instil good habits early on.
