We have a lot of little kids who ride or walk to school solo or with other siblings. It's a mile+, and I actually wrote a letter to our school board about it, because our start time change means there are more delivery trucks and work trucks in the neighborhood now, with NO idea they're barreling down a street with no sidewalks and a group of 5/6 yr olds potentially around each bend. I'm surprised this year how many are walking or riding bikes without an adult.
This morning I saw one, looks to be about 6, who routinely gets left behind by the crowd, and this time she looked like she was crying. This is the first year it's been so many of the younger kids going solo - it used to be anyone younger than 10 or 11 had some adult with them, even if it was a neighbor.
