Moorpark - Pedestrians Reminded to Not Use Bicycle Lanes - Media Release

Nature of Incident: Pedestrians in Bicycle Lanes PROHIBITED
Location: City of Moorpark
Date & Time: Monday, June 10, 2013
Unit(s) Responsible: Moorpark City Beat Coordinator

Narrative:

Jogging and walking in bicycle lanes when sidewalks are available is against California Vehicle Code law.

With the beautiful warmer days ahead, many people will be heading to the roadways and sidewalks throughout the city to enjoy the fresh air and scenery. We want to make sure that everyone enjoys this nice weather safely. It is very important to remember that bicycle lanes are for bicycles and not for jogging or walking.

Violations of this law can result in the violators receiving a citation.
California Vehicle Code---21966. States no pedestrian shall proceed along a bicycle path or lane where there is an adjacent adequate pedestrian facility (Added Ch. 751, Stats. 1976. Effective January 1, 1977. )

Be conscientious of all of those around us enjoying the outdoors and be respectful of the laws designed for our safety so we can all enjoy a great summer.
