Pedestrian Etiquette

I notice a lot of people do not have pedestrian etiquette. I have noticed this not only because I walk & Jog a lot around town, but I have noticed this while shopping in malls, grocery stores, in people`s homes, etc.

When walking on a crowded sidewalk, you should always veer to the right when someone is walking by you or coming the other direction, just like when you drive on the road. If you are walking with others, all should veer to the right, if not enough room, the correct thing to do is walk behind each other single file until there is enough room to walk side by side or in a group.
If you are walking on a crowded sidewalk and decide you need to stop, please do not stop dead in your tracks, the person behind you might slam into you, please move to the side out of the way.
If you have a large stroller, please do not use it, or your baby, to bull-doze your way through the crowd, that is Rude and disrespectful to use your baby like that. Another thing please do not hog the road- don`t use the complete sidewalk for your double-wide stroller and don`t be part of the Stroller Mob, where it is impossible to get by your group of breeding diva`s!
When walking out of a store onto a sidewalk, crossing a bike/jog/walking path, Please look out for oncoming traffic don`t just blindly step onto a sidewalk or path thinking traffic will stop for you.
Please do not ride your Bikes, Skateboards, Scooters, etc on the sidewalk, it breeds trouble- it is the law that you ride those in the street. If you are on a Bike or Jog/Walk Path -follow the arrows and make sure not to ride on anything in the Pedestrian Area.
When walking a Dog, please ALWAYS use a Leash. Please keep dog on a snug leash. No one wants to trip over a leash if the dog crosses over. That could be very dangerous for the dog as well as the passer-by. Please do let your dog jump, chase or get to close to others, your dog maybe the best dog but the other person does not know that, you do not know what trauma they may have in the past from a dog attack, etc. Besides they may even be highly allergic. Be courteous of that!
Please be aware of your surroundings, do not assume someone is going to move for you, please make room for your fellow Pedestrians, Bikers, Joggers, etc.
As time goes by, I am sure I will have much more to add to this- but for now, that is all. Please spread this Blog to ALL!!
Thank you.
