It's a current safety hazard. So unsafe I'll DRIVE somewhere to walk in my otherwise safe area on the west side of EPA. I won't walk my dogs in the areas w/no sidewalks & feel sorry for those w/kids - but no cars to get somewhere w/sidewalks. It's been unsafe for YEARS & YEARS! And that's just the sidewalks.
