  •  Some CITIES in US don't have sidewalks (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    I lived in southwest Portland for a year and was stunned to see that some blocks very near my place in residential neighborhoods had no sidewalks. We were inside the city limits mind you, so it wasn't like this was unincorporated county. I didn't even know that was legal. I found out later that lots of cities in the US have residential neighborhoods with no sidewalks. Putting sidewalks in all these neighborhoods is going to be enormously expensive, but IMHO it has to be done.
