Posts Tagged ‘Sidewalks’

Now that we’ve come to the end of our sidewalk riding series for LA County, we’d like to provide you with some easy reference tools. Brand new developments are:

  • A pdf with alphabetic listings of each category for sidewalk riding and the corresponding citation in that city’s municipal code.
  • A color coded map showing which cities allow sidewalk riding, which don’t, and which restrict riding in a “business district”.
  • Another “page” at the top of the blog, keeping all sidewalk riding information one place.

Check the map out for yourself

It’s interesting to note that the cities which don’t allow sidewalk riding are often bunched together, like Inglewood, Hawthorne, Lawndale & Gardena or the cities grouped around the Pomona Freeway.

The final tally came out to:

  • Sidewalk riding allowed: 12 cities
  • Sidewalk riding not allowed: 32 cities & LA County
  • Sidewalk riding not allowed in “business districts”: 25 cities
  • No clear language in the municipal code: 19 cities

It’s been a long, long road in the quest for sidewalk riding laws in the cities of LA County.  If you’re a glutton for punishment, you can check out parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 of LA County Sidewalk Riding.  Today, in our final installment of “LA County Sidewalk Riding”, we’re covering the rules of the road (er, sidewalk) in the eastern half of the San Gabriel Valley.

Baldwin Park has bike lanes, but can you ride on their sidewalks?

(Ed. note: Before we get started, let’s just make clear that all the same disclaimers from Part 1 still apply.  Good?  Good.) (more…)

We’re almost done!  LADOT Bike Blog has covered everywhere in LA County (in parts 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5) except the eastern San Gabriel Valley and the 605 corridor.  Today, we’re going to take a trip down to Whittier to see what sidewalk riding rules look like near the Orange County border.

So far, LADOT Bike Blog has covered the rules for sidewalk riding in LA, the County, the Valley, north county, west county, and the beach/beach-adjacent towns of the south bay.  Today, LADOT Bike Blog will cover the cities and towns of the Harbor Corridor.

Long Beach has some pretty innovative infrastructure, but what about their sidewalks?

(Ed. note 2:  Props to Los Angeles Transportation Headlines for picking up all 4 parts of our series so far.  They’re a great clearinghouse for all LA transportation news and we highly recommend becoming a regular reader.)

So we’ve covered mid-town as well as the Valley, north county and west county. Today we’re taking a stroll down the boardwalk: the beach towns of the Westside and the South Bay area get their turn under the magnifying glass of LADOT Bike Blog.

(Ed. note: Before we get started, let’s just make clear that all the same disclaimers from Part 1 still apply. Good? Good.)

(Ed. Note 2: Sadly, LADOT Bike Blog had to be out of town during the Mayor’s Bike Summit. Rather than try to cobble together a sub-optimal story out of second-hand accounts, LADOT Bike Blog suggests you take a look at the expert reporting done by others in the online LA Bike Community like Biking in LA, Streetsblog, LAist, Gary Rides Bikes & The Source.)
