There are new bicycle lanes on the sidewalks of Gangnam. They were installed at great expense to help “green” the city of Seoul. Rather, this legitimizes the use of the sidewalk by wheeled vehicles in the minds of Korean drivers (automobile drivers and motorcycle drivers). Pedestrians must step aside for honking drivers who now claim half of the sidewalk.
