Coroner wrong in Walk to School decision

: 31 Jul 2019

Living Streets Aotearoa is shocked that the Coroner has said “the girl killed by the rubbish truck should not have been walking to school without an adult.”

It is a child's right to walk to school safely, and its the Government's job to make sure it was safe to walk to school or to play.
