When I was a child, I used to draw streets on our driveway with chalk. I'd zoom around on my bicycle, running "errands" and commuting to "work" - I even set up a toll and tried to charge my brother when he rode by. While I no longer see transportation as a game, I do instill in my work a belief that walking and bicycling can be an enjoyable, safe, and viable means of transportation for everyone.
