Safety Demonstration

Driveway Hazard Of Sidewalk Riding by GarySe7en

The author has an associated article on his BLOG, titled: Coexistence 3: Bikes on the Sidewalk. In it he points to something I missed, that you may actually have less legal protection should you get in a crash when riding on a sidewalk. In a crash with a car, they’ll argue that you need to walk across a crossing. In a crash with a pedestrian, it favors the slowest.

Also, most sidewalk laws allow for children under 12 to ride on the sidewalk.
