Questions on Pedestrian Laws

Pedestrian safety is an important aspect of traffic laws in different parts of the United States. Each state in the country may have a set of pedestrian laws that put forth rules and regulations for pedestrians. These laws may also put forth the rights of pedestrians in case of an accident. Given below are commonly asked questions on pedestrian laws answered by the Experts.

Do pedestrians have right of way at crosswalks?

Pedestrians may have right of way over other traffic at crosswalks. Most of the time, these crosswalks may be located near traffic signals or other traffic controlling devices to regulate vehicular traffic and give pedestrians priority.

What are the rules for pedestrians in areas without a sidewalk or shoulder in the State of Kansas?

In the State of Kansas, pedestrians may walk as close as possible to an outside edge of a roadway if there is no sidewalk or shoulder available. They may have to walk facing the incoming traffic in such situations. If they are on a two-way roadway, they may walk only on the left side of the roadway.

Who would be responsible for the medical costs resulting from an accident involving a pedestrian?

In most situations, if the motorist hits a pedestrian, the motorist can be held responsible for any medical costs incurred as a result of the accident. If the motorist does not have insurance coverage, the individual can still be held personally responsible for the costs.

Is a motorist required to submit the SR-1 if no one was injured in an accident involving a pedestrian?

In some cases the motorist may be required to submit the SR-1 only if someone was injured and taken to the hospital. If no one was injured, the motorist may not have to submit the SR-1.

Would a motorist be responsible if he/she was to hit a pedestrian who was partially on the street?

In most situations, the motorist may be held responsible if he/she hit a sidewalk pedestrian who is partially on the street. This is because the motorist may be expected to stop and give way to the pedestrian unless the pedestrian came onto the street at the last minute and the motorist could not stop his/her vehicle.

What can an individual do if he/she is charged with not giving way to a pedestrian at a T-intersection?

If an individual was charged with not giving way to a pedestrian at the crosswalk of a T-intersection, the individual may plead not guilty and state that the crosswalk was obscure and he/she thought that the pedestrian was jaywalking. If the individual was away from the pedestrian, he/she l can also state that the distance between him/her and the pedestrian was enough to assume that there was no danger to the pedestrian.

What punishment would an individual face if he/she received a speeding ticket in a heavy pedestrian traffic zone in Georgia?

A speeding ticket may be considered to be a misdemeanor in the State of Georgia. The individual may get jail time of up to 12 months or fines of $100 to $2,000 or even both.

Pedestrian laws are put in place to ensure the safety of people who walk on the roads. These laws may not be the same across the country. These laws cover various aspects such as pedestrian safety, right of way, pedestrian duties and rights in case of an accident and so on. It may not always be easy for you to understand the various aspects of pedestrian laws. At such times, it’s better to consult with an Expert who can offer you insightful information both quickly and at a reasonable cost.

    I was pulled over by a state police officer on W-470. A car was pulled by a policeman on the shoulder. I was in the right lane.

  • Is there any way out of this ticketI was given 2 tickets

    Is there any way out of this ticket I was given 2 tickets on july 23rd while riding my motorcycle. 1. No issurance 2. "Failure to keep a lane" I missed my first 2 court dates received and warrant. Went in today and motioned the tickets up and beat the the no insurance. I have to return on the 5th for the other ticket. The cope wrote in "failure to keep a lane" on the ticket. The paperwork that received today after the motion says improper traffic lane usage. I was in the restricted yellow section between two opposing lanes (like you might see a bicyclist)when the cop saw me. This is Chicago IL. Anyway to beat this?
