Why does what matter?  Compared to what?

I'd like to know whether I can walk on a sidewalk, or walk on the
grass in the right of way next to the road, or walk on the road, or
not walk there at all.  Each is a different situation which I'd be
willing to do under different circumstances.

It may be legal to walk on private property next to a road at least
when a car's approaching (I don't really know, what if there's a "no
trespassing" sign?).  But it's not always even possible to do so.
