What Is A Crosswalk?
A crosswalk is a portion of a street set aside for pedestrians. Most crosswalks are located at intersections, but they may also be located in the middle of the street. While some crosswalks are marked with painted lines, others are not. Crosswalks are often not marked at intersections in residential neighborhoods. However, pedestrians have the right of way whether the crosswalk is marked or not.
One of the most common types of crosswalk accidents occurs when a motorist makes a turn at an intersection without looking for pedestrians in the crosswalk.
