Sharing with Pedestrians

A pedestrian is a person on foot or using a conveyance propelled by human power (skates, skateboard) other than a bicycle; and also includes disabled persons who may be using powered devices.

Disabled persons using self-propelled wheelchairs, tricycles, or quadricycles are not able to move about as easily as pedestrians. These persons should be given the same rights as any other pedestrian. Pedestrian and bicycle accidents are the leading cause of death for ages 8 through 14. Pedestrian safety is a serious issue. One in six traffic fatalities is a pedestrian.

Pedestrians lose in any accident, regardless of who had the right-of-way. Drive cautiously when pedestrians are near and may cross your path.

Children under the age of 15 account for about 29% of pedestrian victims and about 28% of bicycle victims.

Most of the time you are a pedestrian, not a driver. There are both rights and responsibilities you should know to insure your safety when you are not driving your vehicle.
