Another typical case

- no explicitly marked crossings
- sidewalk parallel to road
- kerb separating sidewalk from road
- hedge, interrupted for each driveway and at the junctions, placed on
sidewalk, parallel with road.

--> need to add all driveways ?
--> need to draw virtual crossings at junctions ?
