Is this appropriate? Would you do the same thing in a road?

From my point of view, I cannot cross over the white line onto the pavement to the right, as that would be cycling on the pavement and is illegal. It's also illegal to drive a vehicle on the pavement and to block a cyclelane with a parked vehicle. The jacket thrown down would arguably be obstruction.
