National Walk to Work Day is coming up on 1 October. It's the one day of the year when something appears to be done to encourage people not to get in their cars to drive the short distance to their office but instead to walk. The website says that the scheme is now in its 12th year.
It's a bit like Walk Safely to School Day which is in May. That's the one day of the year when parents are encouraged to get out of the 4wd and walk their children around the corner to school instead of driving. It's all great fun and you can get stickers and everything.
The next day of course is back to normal with streets choked with cars and children imprisoned in the back of 4WDs on the way to school.
A great initiative.
