What that means is that regardless of whether or not there is a painted pedestrian crosswalk, pedestrians still have the right of way on the road so you need to always keep your eyes out for them.
You rarely see painted crosswalks especially in rural areas so be careful. If you have taken a drivers ed course, you will learn about checking your zones through the Smith System. You should also keep your eyes moving so that you are aware of what is happening all around your vehicle in relation to other moving objects. If you aren't familiar with this, I would suggest you sign up for a drivers ed class before you ever get behind the wheel.
There is yes, at a controlled intersection where the pedestrian has a red hand or a "Do not walk". If the pedestrian ventures into the road while the red hand is lit, then you should do everything in your power to stop. If the pedestrian looks like they're going to venture into the crosswalk while you're approaching (with a green light) then you should honk at them to get their attention to stop them from entering the crosswalk.
A limit line marks a crosswalk and the beginning of an intersection.
No you can not
You need to stop and let the pedestrian cross.
no you can not
When a pedestrian withdraws his/her cane and steps away from the crosswalk you should stop and proceed through the intersection.
Please always cross the word at the pedestriancrossing ( crosswalk).
Crossing a road without a crosswalk is dangerous and illegal. If a pedestrian is knocked down at a non-residential area that does not have a crosswalk, the driver is not at fault.
Like a crosswalk-for persons on foot.
true it is.
It is unlawful every place that I know of, to park a vehicle on a public sidewalk. yes
strictly speaking it is legal for an pedestrian to cross a roadway outside of a crosswalk, when he crosses the road at residential area which is non artillery or main road. hari
Well, let's see... a blind walker or a driver with a car as a lethal weapon. When a car reaches an intersection and a blind pedestrian is there, ANY pedestrian already on the road or crosswalk has complete right of way---especially a blind person. IF the blind person is waiting on a corner, is not stepping off the curb, SLOW down just in case the person steps onto the roadway.
According to the California Department of Motor Vehicles Right-of-Way at Crosswalks21950. (a) The driver of a vehicle shall yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian crossing the roadway within any marked crosswalk or within any unmarked crosswalk at an intersection, except as otherwise provided in this chapter.(b) This section does not relieve a pedestrian from the duty of using due care for his or her safety. No pedestrian may suddenly leave a curb or other place of safety and walk or run into the path of a vehicle that is so close as to constitute an immediate hazard. No pedestrian may unnecessarily stop or delay traffic while in a marked or unmarked crosswalk.(c) The driver of a vehicle approaching a pedestrian within any marked or unmarked crosswalk shall exercise all due care and shall reduce the speed of the vehicle or take any other action relating to the operation of the vehicle as necessary to safeguard the safety of the pedestrian.(d) Subdivision (b) does not relieve a driver of a vehicle from the duty of exercising due care for the safety of any pedestrian within any marked crosswalk or within any unmarked crosswalk at an intersection.Amended Sec. 8, Ch. 833, Stats. 2000. Effective January 1, 2001.Pedestrians Outside Crosswalks21954.

you could probably get charged with "reckless driving" along with hitting a pedestrian on a crosswalk. It depends if it was considered "hit and run", if it was your fine could probably go up by $100-$300.
Crosswalks cannot be assessed penalties, Only pedestrians or drivers can be assessed penalties. Are you asking about a driver blocking a crosswalk? Failing to stop for a pedestrian in a crosswalk? A pedestrian not using a crosswalk to cross a street? (Hardly ever ticketed in Mass.) Go here: http://www.mass.gov/courts/courtsandjudges/courts/districtcourt/cmviassess.pdf
As listed below, a pedestrian does not always have right of way. They must also yield right of way to vehicles. CHAPTER 552. PEDESTRIANS 552.002. PEDESTRIAN RIGHT-OF-WAY IF CONTROL SIGNAL PRESENT. (a) A pedestrian control signal displaying "Walk," "Don't Walk," or "Wait" applies to a pedestrian as provided by this section. (b) A pedestrian facing a "Walk" signal may proceed across a roadway in the direction of the signal, and the operator of a vehicle shall yield the right-of-way to the pedestrian. (c) A pedestrian may not start to cross a roadway in the direction of a "Don't Walk" signal or a "Wait" signal. A pedestrian who has partially crossed while the "Walk" signal is displayed shall proceed to a sidewalk or safety island while the "Don't Walk" signal or "Wait" signal is displayed. Acts 1995, 74th Leg., ch. 165, § 1, effective. Sept. 1, 1995. 552.003. PEDESTRIAN RIGHT-OF-WAY AT CROSSWALK. (a) The operator of a vehicle shall yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian crossing a roadway in a crosswalk if: (1) no traffic control signal is in place or in operation; and (2) the pedestrian is: (A) on the half of the roadway in which the vehicle is traveling; or (B) approaching so closely from the opposite half of the roadway as to be in danger. (b) Notwithstanding Subsection (a), a pedestrian may not suddenly leave a curb or other place of safety and proceed into a crosswalk in the path of a vehicle so close that it is impossible for the vehicle operator to yield. (c) The operator of a vehicle approaching from the rear of a vehicle that is stopped at a crosswalk to permit a pedestrian to cross a roadway may not pass the stopped vehicle. Acts 1995, 74th Leg., ch. 165, § 1, effective. Sept. 1, 1995. 552.005. CROSSING AT POINT OTHER THAN CROSSWALK.

(b) Between adjacent intersections at which traffic control signals are in operation, a pedestrian may cross only in a marked crosswalk. (c) A pedestrian may cross a roadway intersection diagonally only if and in the manner authorized by a traffic control device.
You may NEVER park your car in such a way as to obstruct a public sidewalk or crosswalk - anywhere.
. . . at an intersection or in a marked crosswalk.
If you were walking on the crosswalk and if you were not at fault, the driver should be responsible for covering the cost of damages... assuming you were not doing anything wrong like not walking on the crosswalk, or walking on the crosswalk when it says not to...
In the middle of the block with no crosswalk . Where a "crosswalk closed" sign is posted. When the hand rather than the walk signal is lighted. (Oregon law)
