Why do people ride on the footpath?
Haworth, Narelle L. & Schramm, Amy J. (2011) Why do people ride on the footpath? In Asia-Pacific Cycle Congress, 18-21 September 2011, Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Brisbane, QLD. (Unpublished)
Recent increases in cycling have led to concerns about interactions between cyclists and pedestrians on footpaths and off-road paths. Much of the cycling research suggests that riding on the footpath is more dangerous than on the road. In most Australian jurisdictions, adults are only permitted to cycle on footpaths when accompanying a child. However, this rule does not apply in Queensland. This paper examines the predictors of footpath riding by adults in Queensland
