    Hi Kim! That article about city planning really hit home. I don’t walk nearly as much as I could despite living in a dense, urban area because it can be unsafe with small children, particularly the lack of pedestrian crossings and drivers who do not seem aware of pedestrians (flying around corners, not checking for pedestrians before turning left).

    It was easier when I could pack them in the stroller (and kind of silly one needs an all terrain stroller in the city, but with the sidewalks being so bad and not all curbs having slopes for wheelchairs and strollers it’s necessary, especially if you are pushing two kids) but now that they are walking, we can only move so fast. I imagine the elderly run into the same problems, which probably cuts down on their independence a lot.

      Hi Tracy – It wouldn’t take much to make it friendly for everyone. Because everything is so dependent on cars, it’s really hard for the elderly when they are unable to drive anymore.

      We have sidewalks but a lot of them are a mess and it’s hard to get around with a stroller. I can’t imagine trying to do it with a wheelchair.
