Cyclist = Pedestrian?

So I read in the paper this morning that a 14-year old boy was hit by a car yesterday morning, while riding his bicycle. The incident happened at a crosswalk on North Park Street, and the driver was issued a ticket for failing to yield to a pedestrian.

So I read in the paper this morning that a 14-year old boy was hit by a car yesterday morning, while riding his bicycle. The incident happened at a crosswalk on North Park Street, and the driver was issued a ticket for failing to yield to a pedestrian. WTF!!!???? If the boy was riding his bike, as specified in the paper, then he wasn’t a pedestrian and had no right being in the crosswalk at all. If he were walking his bike across the crosswalk, there would be merit to the ticket. If he was, in fact, riding his bike across the crosswalk, the ticket should be overturned.



The boy was treated for minor injuries, so thankfully he’s alright.

I’d be fighting this ticket.

Which is it?
