Sidewalk cyclists not pedestrians
Thanks for the jeers to the sidewalk cyclists.
Jeers, as well, to their assumption that, being on the sidewalk, they are pedestrians and have the right-of-way (without looking for traffic, of course) at intersections.
Does riding on the sidewalk convert the bicycle, which is a vehicle, into a pedestrian? If one drives one’s car on the sidewalk, will it become a pedestrian, too? Don’t try it, please.
If cyclists will ride their vehicles on the road, and obey the vehicular rules of the road (on the right side of the road, please), it will be easier to “share the road,” as the signs say. Then, those who are on foot won’t have to share the sidewalk. Carl Mathis Charlottetown
