The Highway Safety Code (Quebec) (section 492.1) is formal: the driver of a motorcycle, a scooter or a bicycle can not drive on a sidewalk unless it is necessary or the signs do not prescribe it. Therefore, unless there are obvious obstructions on the roadway or if it is the subject of work that prevents it from circulating, the cyclist must not use the sidewalk.
To each his space!
- The sidewalk is the realm of the pedestrian. This space is reserved for him, which makes him not wary of cyclists who could arrive at high speed.
In summary: the sidewalk is to your help.
