Pedestrians in a Bike lane
Joe asked: While riding with traffic, single file, I often encounter walkers/joggers coming toward me, against the flow of traffic. Question is, who has the “right of way”?
Bike lanes are part of the roadway and are intended for use by bicyclists.
There are a number of posts on this site that show the laws and discuss the details of this subject. This is one:
It is recommended that you treat pedestrians in the roadway as obstacles and, if safe to do so, leave the bike lane to pass them. Bicyclists may always leave the bike lane or the right side of the roadway to avoid any unsafe condition.
The “due care” provisions in the statutes caution against colliding with pedestrians.
