    ''on foot''



    "In the interest of safety, we're asking people to not be out in the streets in their vehicles or on foot."

    hi,
    the text above was extracted from a today's newspaper. is the underlined expression standard and common English, please? can I say "My car isn't working. I am going to work on foot today."?
    thanks.
