2.02 Prohibited Cycling on Sidewalks

BikeTexas Benchmark Study

In many urban areas, cycling on sidewalks in prohibited by law. The reason for doing so is to eliminate potential conflict between cyclists and pedestrians. Another reason for prohibiting cyclist on sidewalks is for the safety of the cyclists. When a cyclist rides along a sidewalk, they put themselves at great danger at any intersection. Most vehicular drivers do not check for cyclists on sidewalks when making turns.
