School Run / Club Traffic
We all feel the pain of traffic at school open and close times but less visible are the thousands of journeys to and from after school clubs for sport, musical, hobbies etc. These clubs are really important for working parents but even more important to develop children into rounded adults with time away from the clique of school friends. They all require multiple short journeys and with 2 or more children it can mean zig zagging the island. I suggest the Government fund all schools to provide better on site clubs at the schools that would take children through to 5.30pm.
Why the contribution is important
Offering a broad range of after school activities including Homework clubs would hugely reduce traffic, increase the local workforce and reduce pressure on parents.
