Please learn how to walk on a sidewalk. I realize this might be really, really hard to figure out since you spend most of your time in your cars, but walking is really lovely. The thing is, you have to actually SHARE the sidewalk. I know they are kinda small here, but sometimes you need to walk single-file to let people by. Don't just try to squeeze by people. I have been shouldered more times here in CA than I ever was in Philly (and Philadelphians LOVE to shoulder people!). And the same rules that apply to the road apply to the sidewalk (walk on the right, pass on the left). Nobody wants to walk on the dirt/in a tree/in the wet grass, so just share the pathway.
