The seclusion is so effective that the Orange Line turned into a homeless encampment. The case involved a cyclist who was riding the Los Angeles Rive Path and was injured by what he claims was a poorly designed gate. The City avoided debating the design and maintenance of the Bike Path and instead simply argued the "ride at your own risk" defense.
Sadly, the City prevailed. This means that the city is not liable for any injuries that occur on Bike Paths.
Maintaining the Bike Path, the lights, the landscaping, the fences, the walls all become low-priority. Now this explains why they lead to nowhere.
