Frequently Asked Questions

What pedestrians should know about crossing at a crosswalk?

Here's what every pedestrian should know about crossing at a crosswalk: Many crosswalks do not traffic lights or crosswalk lights. At these crosswalks, drivers should yield the right of way to pedestrians who are crossing the street.

What are pedestrians considered crosswalk or driveway?

Bicyclists, skaters and skateboarders in a crosswalk or driveway are considered pedestrians. Turning motorists must stop for pedestrians at intersections and driveways. Motorists must stop or yield as appropriate for pedestrians crossing the street or driveway at any marked mid-block crossing, driveway or intersection without traffic signals.

Are pedestrians required to use crosswalks?

1.5. VC 21955: Pedestrians have to use crosswalks at an intersection . VC 21955 requires pedestrians to stick to the crosswalks when they cross at intersections where there are traffic lights, traffic signals, or police officers. This prevents pedestrians from crossing straight to the opposite corner of the intersection, unless there is a crosswalk that allows it.

Are pedestrian rights different outside of crosswalks?

Pedestrian Rights Outside Crosswalks. Crosswalk laws differ when a pedestrian crosses the street in areas that are not crosswalks, as defined by Georgia law. Vehicles on the roadway have the right-of-way in these situations, unless the pedestrian already entered the road under safe conditions.
