It depends on the circumstances.

If the pedestrian ran out in front of the care carelessly, it is the pedestrians fault for endangering their own safety.

If the driver of the car was speeding or not concentrating properly, it is the drivers fault for disobeying the rules of the road.

Police will examine eyewitness reports and CCTV recordings to determine which is to blame.

What is the Texas Law for yielding to a pedestrian?

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. (a) A pedestrian shall yield the right-of-way to a vehicle on the highway if crossing a roadway at a place: (1) other than in a marked crosswalk or in an unmarked crosswalk at an intersection; or (2) where a pedestrian tunnel or overhead pedestrian crossing has been provided. (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.

Why did the zebra cross the road?

Because the signal was green. Because he wanted to be a zebra crossing. (This only works in areas where pedestrian crossings are striped in broad black-and-white stripes and called 'zebra crossings').

Can a pedestrian cross the street against a red light?

Pedestrian actions are governed by traffic lights also. You may not cross a lane of traffic which has the green light to proceed. If you are referring to a strictly 'pedestrian-control' signal (i.e.: walk-don't walk signal), the answer is definitely no.

What are the differences between school and pelican crossings?

At a school crossing there are no buttons to push for a walk signal, where a pelican crossing does.

What is the pedestrians law.?

In the U.S. and Canada the law is: * Cross on crosswalks (if a car hits a pedestrian in a crosswalk that's not a good thing! * Most crosswalks have either an automatic signal to tell the pedestrian when to cross or there is a button close by the pedestrian can push to change the crosswalk signal. * If pedestrians J-walk (not in a crosswalk) then it's not the driver's fault in most cases. * If the weather is bad it's up to the pedestrian to be aware as much as the driver of vehicles and if you go out dressed in black or any dark clothing and think that you have are the cock of the J-walk think again! If you have dark clothing on and were not giving drivers a chance to see you then charges may not be laid against the driver and you're on your own. NOTE: A pedestrian is just as responsible for walking even across a crosswalk as a driver is seeing them.

What is the first warning signal of an approaching train on a level crossing?

The train whistle or the red warning lights flashing is the first warning signal of an approaching train on a level crossing. At many railroad crossings, the stop arm would be blocking access to crossing the tracks.

Is a pedestrian wait or walk signal merely advisory or is it a law?

It's law. If you cross a road on a "Do Not Walk" sign, you are jaywalking, and can be cited for it.

What to do when approaching a zebra crossing?

When approaching the Zebra Crossing you have to reduce speed, put your hazard lights, signal your intensions to stop. Then take off when the pedestrians have crossed

What is the working of zero crossing detector?

The working of zero-crossing detector is to detect the transition of a signal waveform from positive and negative, providing a narrow pulse that coincides exactly with the zero condition.

What are the three differences between a zebra crossing and a pelican crossing?

A pelican crossing is a signal controlled crossing - a zebra crossing is not. A zebra crossing with a central island is two separate crossings - a pelican crossing which goes straight across the road even with a central island is regarded as one crossing. On the approach to a zebra crossing, road users should be prepared to slow down or stop to let pedestrians cross. At pelican crossings road users must stop when the red light shows (even if there are no pedestrians using the crossing).

When does the pedestrian not have the right of way?

Which features of transposons is responsible for genetic polarity?

presence of stop signal within transposon.

What are the functions of utp crossover cable?

The crossover cable switches the signals between one end of the cable to the other. This causes the transmit signal on one end to be the receive signal on the other end.The reason for crossing over is to allow a transmitting system to send signals to a receiving system. Without crossing over the signals a transmit signal would arrive at a transmit signal, which is equivalent to a person talking to another person without ever listening (i.e. it won't work for a conversation).

How does the crossing gates sense a train is coming?

It depends which country you're in. In the UK, they are synchronised with the track lights. As a train approaches the lights close to the crossing, they trigger the stop signals to halt the traffic, and power electric motors to close the crossing gates. Once the train passes the next signal lights after the crossing, they trigger the crossing indicators to go out, and retract the gates to allow traffic to move again.
