Parental Perceived Barriers to Active Commuting to School in Ecuadorian Youth

This article reports on a study of parental perceived barriers to active commuting to school (ACS) in youth in Ecuador. The study emphasized the importance of determining the parental barriers to ACS in order to develop effective interventions. Traffic volume/speed, crime, and distance are the main Ecuadorian parental barriers. Distance was a negative barrier for parents of Ecuadorian children and adolescents. Dangerous intersections were associated with more passive adolescent behavior in Ecuador. New strategies should improve parental safety perception and traffic in school areas.
