At what age do you allow your child to walk to school alone? )


We live about 5 blocks from my sons elementary school. you have to go up 2 blocks and then over 3. 1 of the blocks there isnt a sidewalk so he would have to walk on the side of the road. Our road isnt too busy, but the road with the school on it is obviously quite busy with school getting out. He keeps begging me to let him walk alone because another child down the road does.Im way over-protective so im wondering what others think. What age would be normal to let him do this?
