In many rural areas, there are no sidewalks or other clearly marked pedestrian footpaths along the side of the road, but some road do have wide shoulders or verges, sometimes up to a full car lane in width, that are separate from the road and allow for enough space for a pedestrian to walk safely. Would these shoulders be acceptable as safe pedestrian areas and what limitations on width, grade, and [surface composition] should reviewers consider when assessing these areas?
