REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON SIDEWALKS ALONG RURAL HIGHWAYS

BASED UPON DATA ASSEMBLED, THE EXPRERIENCE OF MEMBERS, AND OTHER SOURCES OF INFORMATION THE COMMITTEE RECOMMENDS THE FOLLOWING GENERAL WARRANTS FOR RURAL SIDEWALK CONSTRUCTION. SIDEWALKS SHOULD BE CONSTRUCTED ALONG HIGHWAYS WHERE CONSIDERABLE NUMBERS OF PEDESTRIANS WALK ON THE HIGHWAY AND THE RECORDS SHOW THAT THIS IS RESULTING IN FREQUENT PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS. THE NEED FOR SIDEWALKS MUST BE FORESEEN BEFORE THE IMPENDING TOLL OF PEDESTRIAN DEATHS AND INJURIES START. SEPARATE WALKWAYS SHOULD BE BE PROVIDED ON BRIDGES AND THROUGH UNDERPASSES TO FULFILL IMMEDIATE OR ANTICIPATED NEEDS. EIGHT TENTATIVE RECOMMENDATIONS ARE ALSO MADE. /AUTHOR/
