Which Side of the Road Should You Walk On?

Man walking on the left side of the road against the traffic in a residential neighborhood.

When sidewalks are present one should always use them, regardless of which side of the road it is on. Walking against traffic (left side of the road) is the recommended way to walk along a road that does not have sidewalks because walking against traffic allows pedestrians to establish and maintain eye contact with opposing drivers and assists pedestrians with the ability to see possible dangers coming their way. When you are walking with the flow of traffic, you only have your ears to rely on to alert you of anything coming, which can occasionally be a little startling and would impact your ability to make good decisions. To be on the safe side please always use sidewalks when available, and if sidewalks are not present, please walk against traffic.

The nine-member Pedestrian Safety Task Force was formed in 2017 to ensure all pedestrians in Peachtree Corners will be able to walk and run safely. Its objectives were to:

  • Identify general problem areas, hot/trouble spots and opportunities to improve
  • Provide ideas, tactics for solutions and improvements
  • Be proactive and progressive to keep importance of pedestrian safety a key top of mind issue among residents and the city council/leaders
  • Contribute to the bigger picture strategy of PTC being a future-forward, ideal place to live, work, and play – with pedestrian safety a priority
