Walking should be norm for short distances28th November 2012
The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence has said that people should walk and cycle more to combat a “silent epidemic” of inactivity which is posing a risk to people’s health in England.
It wants people to avoid using their cars if the trip can be done in 15-20 minutes on foot or on a bicycle and it wants to see local authorities do more to make walking and cycling an easier option in local communities and introduce bicycle-hire schemes, car-free events and better cycle-route signalling and maps.
