All people have a "right" to travel on roads, just so long as they do not impede or endanger the safety of others. However it is not an uncommon habit for cyclist to switch from one road to another and often endanger the safety, or even life, of pedestrians. Example, on approaching a red light, often a cyclist will switch to pedestrain crossing and then back on to the route he has just left. Unlike automobile users, cyclists carry no liability insurance and any pedestrian being hit from this practice may suffer long term injury with the only means of compensation for loss of employment coming from his own resources. Suing the cyclist is futile since he has already demonstrated his level of irresponsiblity.
