So, when cycling there is one narrow, but busy road I always 'evade' parked cars by cycling a bit on the sidewalk. I am aware this is entirely illegal, however compared to the alternative (stopping every 30 seconds for the 5 minutes it takes me to get to the end or jumping in front of cars which by law should break and drive behind me... but they are going a bit too fast for that) it is a risk I am always taking. I do wonder however, how badly would I be fined for this if caught?
PS. The road in question is in Belgium, so for all practical purposes I only care about the Belgium fine, but as I am Dutch I tend to do this to a lesser extend (the Dutch traffic situation is far better) in the Netherlands as well so would love to know both fines.
