If the penalty is a possible DQ, then yes.

I'll admit to not knowing that rule, and I don't play PDGA events, since I'm not competitive, I ride my recumbent trike cart during weekly doubles and fun things similar. The locals are familiar with my disability and know I would most likely not be able to complete a round without it.

I'm assuming it's not legal since the rule says walk, but I do have to wonder how if there would be any bend to the rule, beings it's still human powered.

Hi, I see you're new here. Here's a pamphlet that'll get you up to speed on all things DGCR. We're in the rules section so you'll want to go to the section on semantics and pedantry.

Welcome!

The existence of codified rules to govern things since the dawn of human civilization seems to contradict the notion that common sense has ever sufficed.

It's perplexing that people are so willing to relinquish intellectual self-sufficiency in even the most elementary of matters. Do rules have a place and purpose? No one denies that they do. Is the function of rules to replace the need for basic thought? Apparently, for some of you.

Yes, precisely. Never completely, but as much as practical. Rules are pre-packaged thinking.

They are good for two things:

1. So we don't have to stand around and discuss from scratch how to act in every situation.

2. So everyone is doing the same thing in every situation -which is the only fair way to compete.

I don't much appreciate you quoting me and then soapboxing some half-veiled insults. It's unkind.

Do we need rules for every situation in life? Does it take a lot of head-scratching to decide whether or not it's ok to ride across the park to tee 11?

I realize that neither this forum nor the disc golf course are the natural habitats of intellect, but some things we can all figure out all by ourselves.

As for your two purposes of the rules, 1 is often counteracted by arguments over the existence of, wording of, or proper application of rules. Rules do not simplify what principles are adequate to contain, quite the opposite. 2 is idealistic and unrealistic. There is no such thing as an equal playing field. However, most people have a remarkably well-functioning sense of justice. The people who ignore or violate it for their own advantage are known as *******s, and will be such within and without the rules. The rest of us don't need to go to talmudic lengths to be satisfied with the fairness of competition.
