Down here drunks, dreamers, phone gabbers, texters, and oldsters (I'm retired) take out a pretty good number of riders yearly down here, so I ride the sidewalk. My right to stay alive preempts my "right" to the road.

That said, dangers exist on sidewalks too. Motorists pushing past the STOP line at lights to make a right on red or a stop sign pay no attention to the sidewalk despite the brightly lit WALK man, also they tend to zip out of driveways onto sidewalks without looking for peds.
