#RoadRights Situation 32
People walking across different types of roads in different locations.
Play along! Did you guess correctly?
ANSWER: Yes, the person in the second situation has the right of way because there is no intersection nearby.
When a pedestrian is on a road where there are no intersections/crossings, pedestrians establish their right of way by stepping into the street and may cross at any location. However, when a pedestrian is on a road with near-by intersections/crossings, pedestrians are expected to cross at those locations. Regardless of right of way law, drivers have a responsibility for safety and should always be watching for pedestrians as they may not always be where we expect them.
