Are Menlo Park's sidewalks too narrow?

It is frightening to think of traffic right next to the narrow sidewalks we have in Menlo Park. If the sidewalks were wider, I would not be so fearful. Our children should not be walking, even if we're holding their hands, right next to a lane of traffic. This is our downtown, and it has to be safe and manageable for our families.
In my experience, the terrible traffic is only at certain times of day, and not every day. There are times there is not much traffic congestion at all. The lights to allow cross-traffic are another matter.
I started this new topic in order to stimulate discussion and the presentation of facts and opinions on this issue.
