How young is too young?
I live in a very small community where all the children are expected to ride their bikes to school. There is no public transportation made available and there are designated bike path lanes as well as crossing guards placed at every road crossing to ensure the children make it across safely.
There is no ‘set age’ that children must be to bike to school alone, and most parents send their kids with friends once they hit third grade. But again, there is no rule about how old a child must be to bike or walk to school alone.
But, that’s not the case everywhere…
Parents in a small town are being warned they could face charges for letting their kids walk to school alone.
