Minnesota’s cities and streets are busy with cars, bicycles and pedestrians who have to interact and share their spaces and roadways. Unfortunately, not everyone understands or observes the rules of the road that govern right of way at crosswalks, stoplights or even stop signs.
Walking can be good for your health, but it can also be very dangerous. Crossing at intersections and other designated crosswalks increases your chances of being seen by motorists. There is, however, no guarantee a motorist will stop and let you safely cross the street. Some of the most severe injuries sustained in traffic accidents involve pedestrians walking in designated crosswalks. Too often motorists fail to observe and respect the rights of pedestrians and bicyclists.
