A video, recorded by Orlando resident Hogan Birney, is making the rounds on social media of a local UPS truck driving on a bike path alongside Bumby Avenue in Audubon Park.
This isn’t an isolated case, as anyone in the Lake Highland area can attest to, as Lake Highland Prep security guards regularly patrol the baseball fields by golf cart on the Orlando Urban Trail on a daily basis. But what are the rules?
So, we spoke with the City of Orlando about who was allowed to do what.
“These multi-use paths throughout the city are specifically designed to provide safe transportation links, recreational areas and outdoor fitness opportunities for a variety of users, including pedestrians and bicyclists.
Vehicles on these paths, including golf carts, cars or trucks is illegal and we encourage residents to report these occurrences to the Orlando Police Department. The only motor vehicles authorized on the paths include maintenance and emergency vehicles, when necessary.” – Jessica Diane Garcia, Public Information Officer
So there you have it. It doesn’t matter who you are, bike paths and trails are not for motorized vehicles. So stay in your lane.
