Sidewalks would help a lot in county islands

I walked to work one recent morning from just south of Herndon Avenue to Shaw along Fruit Avenue. I think it is criminal that homes in the Fresno County islands are not required to provide sidewalks.

Once I crossed Bullard Avenue, the sidewalks were few and far between. My only option was to walk in the gutters or in the wet grass.

Along the way, I was passed by several students heading to Tenaya Middle School or Bullard High School who were doing the same thing -- during heavy commute traffic. If my child were in a situation that required him to walk along that route, I would fear for his life on a daily basis.
