Yakima, Tri-Cities Students Take Part in "National Walk to School Day"

Posted:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- In an effort to promote safer and healthier communities, students and schools all over the country are taking part in National Walk to School Day on Wednesday.

School administrators say they hope children will learn something about traffic safety while getting some exercise at the same time.

Department of Transportation officials say children pedestrians are at an increased risk of getting injured because their size makes them hard for cars to see and also because they are generally not as familiar with traffic laws.
