Engineering shops use their shop-space as storage, and the footpath as their work-space.
City Utility Departments seem to regard footpaths as available space for erecting cross-over bridges, electricity sub-stations, water hydrants, and all manner of obstacles that make strolling more of an adventure maze. Advertising Agencies erect billboards large and small on the footpaths

Footpaths are car-parks for residents whose accommodation doesn't include on-premise parking.
Dogs sleep on footpaths and have a rule that human pedestrians must walk around them.
