Now is the perfect time of year to go on a long walk and admire the beautiful changing leaves! Did you know that there are laws in Maryland regarding rights and rules for pedestrians on roadways? Well, there are!
If you are a pedestrian on a roadway where a sidewalk is provided, you may NOT walk along or on the adjacent roadway. You MUST walk on the sidewalk.
If there is no sidewalk provided, you are only authorized to walk along the left shoulder (or left side of the roadway) if it’s possible to do so. You must also be facing traffic that might approach from the opposite direction.
