Joggers who choose not to use the sidewalk and impede the movement of traffic should be fair game. Just a clip--nothing serious, just sending a message should be allowed.

I like the Lance Armstrong wannabes that will hold up traffic on a state highway when there is a BIKE lane 5 feet to the left.
As a guy who has spent a lot of time on the roads running, I completely, utterly agree. No excuse for someone on foot to not use a sidewalk.
dare i quibble, but there is an excellent reason to use the road. sidewalk=concrete pavement. the most unforgiving running surface possible. asphalt is less so, has an slight bounce in it compared to pavement.
a nice grassy, smooth no pot holes, is best for running, but try to find that in modern society unless its a golf course or something illegal to run on.
if i ran on the road i would get on the sidewalk if i began to encounter a car. i never had a big wish to tangle with thousands of pounds of metal glass & plastic. if the coast was clear i would try to use asphalt. you gotta make way for cars, imho
its not about manners its about preserving your vital organs
Bikes are different because they can keep up with traffic (at least a little bit in Cola because every speed limit is 25 or everyone drives at 25), and if they're on the side walk they could accidentally destroy someone walking their dog or child. Joggers have no excuse. Plus, why would you even want to jog on the road? I stay as far away from moving vehicles as a I can, especially when I'm not in one.
Oh, we're quibbling? Then, sir, I would make the argument that a surface of angry cobras would be the most unforgiving running surface possible. Soft, but "bitey".
I get your point about wanting to run on maybe the better surface, and I agree with you that anyone who does so needs to get back on the friggin sidewalk when vehicles approach. I also agree with your philosophy of deferring to the thing that ways tons more than me.
Is that with a soft J?
That's a good one!
