Traffic Stop Tuesday Postings are presented by the McPherson Police Department

This Tuesday, October 6, they are talking about ‘PEDESTRIANS’ RIGHT OF WAY IN CROSSWALKS’.

Now that school is back in session and children are walking to an from home, we are highlighting Standard Traffic Ordinance (STO) Sec. 64 (a)(b) on PEDESTRIANS’ RIGHT-OF-WAY IN CROSSWALKS!

Be extra attentive to all pedestrians walking and using the crosswalks in the city.

Standard Traffic Ordinance (STO) Sec. 64 (a)(b) on PEDESTRIANS’ RIGHT-OF-WAY in CROSSWALKS says:

  • When traffic controlled signals are not in place or not in operation the driver of a vehicle shall yield the right-of-way, slowing down or stopping if need to be so yield, to a pedestrian entering or crossing the roadway within a crosswalk.
  • No Pedestrian shall suddenly leave a curb or other place of safety and walk or run into the path of a vehicle which is so close as to constitute an immediate hazard.
  • For the pedestrian, be predictable in your movements and remember to watch for vehicles approaching before crossing in a crosswalk.
  • If in doubt, wait, then cross!
  • LOOK TWICE – SAVE A LIFE!
