To be fair though, in a lot of cases you have medians between the sidewalk and traffic on the mouniain and lanes tend to be wider. The lanes on Main and King seem to be of a minimum width which means if someone is in the far right or left lanes they're pushed closer to the sidewalk.

You're right though, the Mountain is by no means more walkable, but in my opinion they should not be held to the same standard. While The Mountain was generally designed with cars in mind the downtown is where we have our traditional commercial corridors; corridors with small businesses that thrive on walkability. However, unfortunately, these corridors have been converted to thoroughfares to accommodate vehicle traffic to a greater degree than their original intent.
