Safety. I know people who weren't allowed to walk to school no matter how close it was because of a busy street or train tracks.
You know why? Not because they're censoring you or there's a conspiracy to make Americans fat and unhealthy, but because the PEOPLE have conspiracy
with the government/school district.
People take advantage of their freedoms and sue the school systems/cities/government when their kid gets hit on a busy street, on train tracks, etc,
If we weren't such a sue-happy country, people would be able to do what they're used to. Since people are idiots and continue to think they're
entitled to anything and everything, yes, some freedoms are taken away. Don't take it up with the schools or government, take it up with your
neighbors and/or peers who put these sort of things in place!
