Ross Moore

What's so dangerous about dark alleys? Why all the concern? Let's start by thinking about alleys themselves. Alleys serve at least 2 purposes: they allow quicker travel for pedestrians between areas in cities (without having to walk around the entire city block to get to the other side), and they allow services (e.g., laundry, trash pickup) to be both removed from the main traffic and concealed from view.
