#RoadRights Situation 9 – Crossing 5 lanes of traffic.

Published by Anna Marie on

Play along! Did you guess correctly?

The Answer: Legally, lanes 4 and 5 must stop.

As the person is walking away from lanes 1 and 2, they may proceed but slowly and with caution, making sure the person walking is well clear of their lanes and drivers are confident the person walking intends to continue crossing.

Five lane crossing should never happen without a lighted crossing. If drivers see others moving, they will continue to move. Also, if traffic is still moving, the pedestrian is being hidden from other drivers, especially in outside lanes. Please explain how you arrived at the interpretation that an occupied crosswalk doesn’t need a full yield all the way across.

I am with Lisa. I answered the question with what I thought SHOULD happen – all lanes stop – not what Idaho law says. The “law” just might be one reason we kill so many pedestrians
