Walkable Neighborhoods Have Happier Residents

Yeah, the info graphic below is for/from California, but the data points are universal.

Walkability = happiness.

And, because images aren’t searchable, the three points:

- Lose Weight! The average resident of a walkable neighborhood weighs 6 to 10 pounds less than someone who lives in a car-dependent neighborhood .

- Save Money! Transportation is the second largest expense for American households, costing more than food, clothing, and health care.

- Connect! Studies show that for every 10 minutes a person spends in a daily car commute, time spent in community activities falls by 10%
