This thread is really taking off! Time to mention “dog poop” and get everyone really agitated.

If you like to walk or jog, moving to TV north of route 44 was a mistake.

If you do like to walk or jog, move to Southern Oaks where they have walking trails that do not allow golf carts. They will also have walking trails that do not even allow bikes or dogs.

That is what the OP is talking about.
I recall hearing about a woman awhile ago that was killed doing that.
One morning I rounded a corner and was surprised to come upon a woman walking her dog
in the cart lane, and there was a sidewalk available.

Every morning I work I see a guy walking with the traffic on the MMP. One day I slowed up beside him and asked if I could give him some advice about walking against the traffic; he said "no, keep your advice to yourself". I smiled and said, "suit yourself, but when your get run over someday, remember today".

Idiot.....
