Ottawa, Gatineau traffic updates for April 25 - Ottawa - CBC News

By Doug Hempstead, CBC News Ottawa, April 25, 2017

Bike lanes are for bikes only

Speaking of bikes, Margaret asked me a question via email:"Are the bike lanes exclusively for bikes? I'm asking because now that spring has sprung, I see multiple wheeled-things on the O'Connor strip including roller blades, skateboards, chair-type vehicles for the disabled, motorized (or electric) two-wheeled scooters and even bikes. All moving at varying speeds.

"Are there laws or by-laws which stipulate speeds in these lanes?"
