Stephen, it is also against the law to exceed the speed limit and use a hand held cell phone while driving but it happens and usually with far deadlier results than sidewalk cyclists. I've been riding pedestrian-less sidewalks for decades on end; when I encounter a walker I immediately hit the road and I never ride a sidewalk close to a corner that I can't see who or what is coming down an adjoining sidewalk.

The question is not that cyclists "act like the sidewalk belongs to them"; rather why are we using sidewalks in the first place? To get on the path of understanding the dilemma and dangers we are really facing is to seek the truth rather than spew and spout.
