roads leading to an intersection in the US were never thought out to be safe for anything crossing at or over five mph imo. To add to that, how many corner lots/houses/businesses have "stuff" blocking the view for what's coming from the sidewalk/cross street? Pretty much every corner house I ride past has tall trees, a bunch of overgrown bushes, privacy fencing, or a wall of bricks on the corner of the property. It's a violation to code for most areas, but nothing is done about it...
