TRAFFIC TIP TUESDAY 07-28-15

Vehicles must yield the right-of-way to pedestrians within a crosswalk when a pedestrian enters the crosswalk, is in the same half of the roadway as the vehicle, or when a pedestrian is approaching closely enough from the opposite side of the roadway to be in danger. When signage so indicates at an uncontrolled intersection, vehicles must stop and allow pedestrians to cross a roadway when a pedestrian enters the crosswalk, is in the same half of the roadway as the vehicle, or when a pedestrian is approaching closely enough from the opposite side of the roadway to be in danger. Pedestrians may not suddenly leave the curb and enter a crosswalk into the path of a moving vehicle that is so close the vehicle is unable to yield. Pedestrians must yield the right-of-way to vehicles when crossing outside of a marked crosswalk or an unmarked crosswalk at an intersection. Where traffic control devices are in operation, pedestrians may only cross between two adjacent intersections in a marked crosswalk and may only cross an intersection diagonally if authorized by a traffic control device. Pedestrians may not cross a roadway at any other place than by route at right angles to the curb of by the shortest route to the opposite curb except for in marked crosswalks.
