Pedestrians have the right of way in marked and unmarked crosswalks, meaning cars must yield (slow or stop) for pedestrians, wherever they are in the crosswalk. A pedestrian is considered in the crosswalk once they step off of the curb.
State law requires pedestrians to use crosswalks when they are provided.
It is unlawful to cross a street outside of a crosswalk if the pedestrian is between two signalized intersections.
At crosswalks with pedestrian signals, state law requires that pedestrians obey the “Walk” and “Don’t Walk” indicators in the same way a driver must obey red or green lights.
If the pedestrian began crossing during the “Walk” signal, they have the right of way over all cars, including those turning right on red, until they complete the crossing.
When NOT at an intersection or marked crosswalk, pedestrians must yield the right of way to all vehicles.
