Does anyone knows why many neighborhoods in Mississippi and rest of the Southern States do not have any sidewalks?

Historically mostly rural and also funding is my guess.

I think the public has a quasi right to use sidewalks, but if there are none, strangers can't walk in your neighborhood. At least that's what they do in some exclusive areas of southern Cali, to keep out the homeless and naredowells.

Is this based on some sort of study? MS is somewhat or a rural state, so you have to indeed have a develop neighborhood before you have sidewalks. My neighborhood has side walks.

They can't even make the roads drivable.
