gates & fences

People like to move freely about their neighborhood, meeting friends, visiting neighbors, & stores. Hedges & fences often prevent this. I don't want to get into a car just to go 1000 feet. We should walk more! There should be gates in long fences & cooperation between large complexes. I feel pedestrian access reduces crime not increase it.
