Catering for the pedestrian

Any person who have walked/driven around Johannesburg will know about situations where property owners don't cater for pedestrians by putting gardens from the edge of their yards until to the pavement of the road. This is not good for those who depends on public transport and should be discouraged by the municipalities. Likewise, those who put sidewalks should be encouraged. Any ideas how we can do that?

It is up to the government to improvise those pedestrian walk ways. If the government leaves an open space not developed for pedestrians, then the owner of the adjuscent property will seek to develop his surroundings and it is not his duty to develop for the public, but to enhence and protect his property
