Human Powered Vehicles in a Bike Lane


Alvilda asked: Human-Powered Vehicles are becoming more and more popular in other countries. As a downtown dweller who rides an adult tricycle as my primary means of transportation, I’m looking into acquiring an HPV with more seating, more cargo space, and more protection from the elements. I’ve come across several pedal cars, which look a lot like miniature cars or golf carts but are pedaled by the rider. Though very small, some of these vehicles appear as though they would take up an entire bicycle lane, possibly protruding out into the traffic lane. Is it allowed to ride such a vehicle in the traffic lanes if it is too large to safely ride in the bicycle lane, even if it travels at a much lower speed? If not, what is the appropriate way to approach driving such a vehicle safely and legally?


I believe your question is answered in this post.
