autotrian or sideautolot?
The English language may not have a single word to name this phenomenon. There is pedestrian which, as a noun, means a person going on foot; or, as an adjective, something related to walking. Then there is sidewalk, a paved walk for pedestrians at the side of a street. There is also the parking lot where motor vehicles are supposed to be parked. But in this chaotic city, these things are never differentiated, all at the the risk of the pedestrians' safety.
How do we name the blending of these things then?
What about: autotrian or sideautolot?
