Pedestrians and cyclists can coexist
PEDESTRIANS and cyclists often blame each other for not giving way on pedestrian walkways. Both sides are to be blamed for this.
Some pedestrians take up the whole path, while cyclists tend to speed past pedestrians, catching them unawares.
It may be good for pedestrians to stick to one side of a path, giving other users the space to manoeuvre.
Cyclists should slow down when they pass pedestrians and, if a bicycle is equipped with a bell - I strongly believe that they should be - the cyclist should use it to warn pedestrians of his approach.
