It seems ironic that a road linking residential areas to a school, playgrounds, community swimming pool, and local commercial district has no pedestrian or bicycle access. Little Falls Parkway has no sidewalk for pedestrians and bicyclist. The LFP “trail” is a dangerous roadway shoulder and the roadway design with wide lanes and a median encourages speeding since it looks like a highway. While commercial vehicles are banned, this ban is not enforced so that it seems like commercial vehicles make up 10-20% of the traffic. Is this a legacy systematic way to limit use of these amenities to those who can afford cars?

Thanks for this. I'd live to see "more park in the parkways." Allowing parkways to become fancy, visually appealing (for drivers) freeways was one of the great mistakes of the 20th century USA.
