There seems to be no clear law on this. Technically I think it's always illegal, but usually ignored in areas where it's required, like a narrow residential street with no driveways, full of morons that have 5 cars and a tiny house.
What's the difference between PMS and Mad Cow Disease?
The number of tits.

Just parking spaces on the pavement then. Usually I see exactly that, but the kerb is the other side of the parking spaces, i.e. the parking spaces are on the road. Looks like someone made an unnecessarily wide pavement to begin with.
Some people's brains are purely for life support purposes only.
Take a look along the length of this street. When everybody is home from work, there are 5 times as many on the pavement. There is nowhere else to park. And for some reason nobody ever gets into trouble for it. https://goo.gl/maps/o3KWW16NgpL2
The teacher wrote "Like I ain't had no fun in months" on the board and then she said, "Timmy, how should I correct that?"
Timmy replied, "Maybe get a new boyfriend?"
A cyclist is more similar to a pedestrian than a car, so he should be on the walking part of the travelling route. FFS I wish yanks could use the same terms.
When I cycle, I always use the clearest part, so as to get in the way of the least people.
"His idea of safe sex is an `X' spray-painted on the rump of animals that are known to kick."
As long as one gives the pedestrian priority and the path is not full
of cyclists, then there should be no problem.
Having said that, I feel that the road should always be used in
preference, unless it is dangerous for cylists on that particular road.
Why should the pedestrian have priority? A cyclist as far as I'm concerned IS a pedestrian, just a slightly faster one. There is no addition of an engine. If I'm walking along a footpath and see a cyclist coming, I step to the side, as it's easier for me to do that than for him to change course. Just as if I'm in a canoe and see a large paddlesteamer approaching, I get out of the way, it's easier for me to change course than him.
No, if there's a car passing every 10 seconds on the road, and a pedestrian every 10 minutes on the pavement, use the pavement, it causes less conflicts.
