This picture was tweeted by @motorcyrubjang yesterday. He labelled it “Special lane for motorcycles”. Of course, he was being sarcastic. Even though it isÂ illegalÂ for them to do so, motorcycles are often seen using the sidewalk as an extra lane. This not only makes it dangerous for pedestrians, I was once nearly knocked over by a motorcycle approaching me fast from behind, but it also damages the sidewalk. The one near my house is a mess as it just isn’t built for such traffic. I doubt the police will ever be strict as I often see them using the sidewalk too. As a car driver, you need to have eyes in the back of your head as motorcycles approach from all different directions. Even going the wrong way on some roads. When you pull out onto a road you normally have to look out for vehicles on your right. You also need to check for motorcycles approaching you on your left.
