Kids and Parents,
PLEASE be careful walking and riding your bikes to school. Its a great idea. But...please beware of the fat oversized SUVs and Minivans that block the vision of other motorists and will block the sight of kids walking or riding across the street. Most drivers of these buses have no business behind the wheel as they dont know how to handle such large 'vehicals'. I'm sick of these tanks blocking the roads and driving up gas prices. Oh yeah, take the stupid "keep tahoe blue" stickers off the bumper! How bout keep the sky blue by getting ride of your tank.

My kids will not be doing this green feel good program. Perhaps when the Obama kids leave their $30000 per child per year private school-and their mommy stops dictating what our kids get in public school lunches I'll reconsider---- the gall.

Good heavens no Sarah, we wouldn't want you to have to climb out of your soccer mom-mobile and possibly break one of your carefully manicured fingernails. No, keep your brats safe inside the Sherman tank. Probably you are one of those who live 2-1/2 blocks from school and still drive - maybe you are one of my neighbors who I see doing exactly that every single day, rain or shine.
By all means let's punish Big O by withholding some fresh air from your offspring. That'll teach the pinko socialist commie.

lol at 2nd Sarah.

I agree, big cars, big luggage, big food, big everything. God forbid they actually get some excercise. Oh yeah, they could help keeping our air fresh without polluting the air with those ridiculous tanks. I'm not sure they realize how stupid they look driving around cars that take up entire lanes.

The irony is these are the people who complain about cyclists sharing the road with cars. How bout you share the road with other cars!
