Interesting ... although I knew that, my habits are programmed with best practices per MTO website, and they have kept me safe so far. Also if I'm using the sidewalk (extremely rare - only when there is a massive traffic jam to bypass) I will stop for each encounter with a pedestrian. My thinking is that walking has the right of way on a sidewalk, so I am constantly yielding to pedestrians. Not conducive to a commute that is properly done on the roadway :)

Also interesting - we were just talking in another thread about municipal pedestrian infrastructure held hostage to interpretations of Provincial traffic law. How come each municipality gets to write different laws for cyclists? Including e-bikes - my research into those rules turned up arbitrary restrictions in some cities.

Is driving affected by such city specific overrides? I mean, parking is very much city specific, but imagine the driver's handbook was different for each city?
