Crosswalk laws

Be Aware of Crosswalk Laws

Legal crosswalks exist at all intersections, and road users are required to stop for pedestrians whether the crosswalk is painted or not. The City has installed in-street crosswalk signs in several locations as a reminder that crosswalks that are not painted nor have crosswalk signs are still legal crosswalks and pedestrians have the right of way.
