The scofflaw cyclists of the inner north

Cyclists Dismount

A few weeks ago Loose Brown suggested that it might make interesting social commentary to video the Sullivan’s Creek bike path and pedestrian crossing of David Street at peak hour.

So on Tuesday 13 March I did just that, for 10 minutes from 8:10am to 8:20am. And indeed it was interesting.

So here’s the thing. It’s a pedestrian crossing and it’s very clearly signposted that cyclists should dismount.

As an exercise for the reader; before you view the video write down how many cyclists you think will go over the crossing in ten minutes, how many will dismount, and how many will ride straight through it.

Let us know how you went in the comments.

Failing that, the next best way is to stop to allow pedestrian traffic to cross.

Agreed, and this implies getting off the bike and walking, or possibly running, across the crossing. Pedestrian, from the Latin pedes – A walker, one who walks.
