Who has the right-of-way on subdivision sidewalks?

People walking always have the right-of-way. Sidewalk etiquette is important. Members are asked to be aware of others around them at all times and to be courteous and respectful to those you meet. The sidewalks need to be shared when passing others in either direction. They are standard width pedestrian sidewalks by design.

  • People on bicycles, rollerblades, skateboards, scooters or running must yield to walkers and should not expect people walking to get out-of-the-way as they pass by in either direction
  • The person moving the fastest is to yield the sidewalk to walkers and go by without forcing the walker off the sidewalk
  • City law requires everyone to yield the right-of-way to pedestrians on sidewalks and to give an audible signal to announce themselves before overtaking and passing a pedestrian walking on a sidewalk
  • People walking pets need to be considerate of others
