OK! I didn’t crop this image because I wanted everyone to see the palm tree on the left hand side.
You know what that palm tree means? It means this picture was probably take in California. Hell, let’s pretend it was in Los Angeles. I would LOVE to see this sign in person.
I 100% guarantee if I stood by this sign for less than an hour, I would see at least 3 cyclists (ones probably not wearing helmets) CONTINUE on the WRONG way. Probably on the side walk. Possibly on a beach cruiser.
There appears to be a fascination with going against traffic, on a side walk, with no helmet (or light on their bike, if it’s at night) in the fine metropolis of Los Angeles.
Though I will be honest – I was walking across the street the other day to window shop at Nordstrom Rack when I saw a sign in front of me that said ‘Use Crosswalks’, with arrows in direction of the cross walk. I continued to walk right by the signs, and over to the shops. AND I WALK ON GRASS WHEN TOLD NOT TO.
But that does not invalidate this sign – when you bike on the WRONG side of the street, on the sidewalk, motorists in America DO NOT look to their right when poking out of a driveway, k? This ain’t England.
Fed up of cyclists on the sidewalk? or do YOU bike on the sidewalk? Best be defendin’ that position, friend.
