Why re­ward those who walk to school?

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - NEWS | OPINION -

BRIAN McBride does a com­mend­able job for the com­mu­nity but re­ward­ing school kids with “$10 for ev­ery 10 walks to school”? It’s a joke. Right? Of course kids should walk or cy­cle to school (I did: 5km, rain, hail or shine).

It’s good for them; no re­ward re­quired.

I think the boot is on the other foot.

Mums who un­nec­es­sar­ily drive their kids, when they could be walk­ing, should be fined $10 per trip for un­nec­es­sar­ily clog­ging up the roads and cre­at­ing may­hem around schools.

Think about it.
