With respect to other pedestrians, no.

No they are pedestrians too.

But it is polite, in any situation, to give those who are moving faster than you the right of way. As a runner, I’m courteous of other peds, but it sucks breaking stride.

threadjacking here but isn’t it a burn when you are at a public space (e.g. outdoor mall) and a group of people walk side by side taking up a whole walkway?

We call it “rollin’ deep” but it can be pretty annoying! I say this because they are often ambling along at a much slower pace then the rest of the thru traffic. Arggh!

Tell me about it! Its the story of my life. I hit a great wall of Chinese the other day. Stopped me dead in my tracks. Very rude.
