Hi Readers! Remember the post from the other day, “Mom & Kid Bike to School, State Trooper Awaits”? Here it is. A Saratoga, N.Y. mom and her son rode their bikes to school only to be chastised by a trooper who informed them that this is verboten. But now, check out this article from the Times Union: Things are looking up!
Okay, not perfectly up. The school district that had strictly FORBIDDEN kids to ride their bikes or walk to school is now considering letting kids MAYBE bike to school with a guardian.
That still seems somewhat obsessive. But Rome wasn’t deconstructed in a day. Kudos to Saratoga for being willing to re-examine a Draconian law against kids, fitness, clean air and common sense. And bikes. — Lenore
