It’s the kind of story that’s a little hard to believe until you visit the neighborhood.
Just after 8 a.m., a school bus stops on North Freemont Avenue and kids pile on.
They have their backpacks, lunches and homework. It all seems normal.
Except they only live a few blocks from the school and aren't allowed to walk.
It would take Jessica Andrews’ four kids about five minutes to walk to Maplewood Elementary School in the Northland. “We’re really, really close. Why aren't they walking, it’s so close? There’s no sidewalks. It’s not safe for them to walk."
