Walking and cycling isn't just some green, hippy, sandal-wearing lifestyle
The fact that half of all journeys of 2km or less are taken by car should be a source of national concern.
That so many people are so exhausted they cannot muster up the energy to walk or cycle to nearby shops must be urgently addressed by Government. Clearly our citizens are so overworked that a tribunal of inquiry is required.
And the fact that cycling rates among second-level schoolchildren have plummeted by 41pc could also form part of the inquiry's deliberations.
