Does every intersection have a pedestrian crosswalk?

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.
