If it's not that it's sidewalks that just end for no reason. North end is notoriously bad for this. Walk 20 minutes and then you're just faced with a ditch on the other side of the road. South end has no crosswalks, so a person is forced to walk a kilometer out of their way just to cross a road.
haha yup, it's so weird. There are multiple spots around my Dad's house in the North East that have sidewalks for about half a block then all of a sudden it's a ditch. They've been like that for the better part of 20 years, just awful.
