+1, in Germany and Italy, you may not walk or cycle on motorways (and mw links), all other situations of roads are covered by access tagging and not implicitly (if you consider motorroad=yes also an access tag). Footways, bridleways etc. not considered (no roads).

When there is no sidewalk, what is typical outside of settlements, you walk on the road. Bigger roads tend to have tracks running along, particularly when there are fields.
