#RoadRights Situation 23

Pedestrian crossing without infrastructure

Play along! Did you guess correctly?

ANSWER: Drivers in both lanes need to see them and stop so they can cross.

Idaho has many places where people must cross busy, rural highways where there is no other option. In another situation, the person might step farther into the road to clearly establish they have the right of way but here it is too dangerous. It is the responsibility of those driving to be aware of someone wanting to cross and stop for them. They will also need to wait for the other lane of traffic to stop in order for the person to safely cross.
