      Happens all the time here. A two-lane road with narrow [or grass] sidewalks and no bike lanes gets widened to four [or six] lanes with 4' bike lanes, a 7' sidewalk on one side, a 10' sidewalk/bike path on the other side, and the road is "safer".

      I've found an easy way to tell if a pedestrian area was built with the intent that it would actually receive use: regularly spaced trash cans--and in hot areas like Florida, drinking fountains. When you have a mile-long path with none of these, you get the feeling it was never meant to be actually used.
