It's less about sidewalks feeling safer than it is about roads feeling very dangerous, especially in Hamilton where even the smaller side streets are often treated as freeways. A big part of the problem is that roads are designed around cars, and any thoughts toward bikes are just afterthoughts.

In the end, the best way to make roads safer is to get as many people out of cars as possible. This means actively encouraging transit, cycling and walking.
