wrong of way

9 comments

Does anybody know the Actual written in stone laws about crosswalks and right of way in them?

I am under the impression that at an intersection the pedestrian or vehicle that is in the intersection first holds right of way over all vehicles and/or pedestrians who have yet to enter. Crosswalks are part of the intersection. In a stand alone crosswalk the pedestrian must stop in the entrance of the crosswalk for 3 seconds to allow vehicles unable to stop time to pass, otherwise it's jay walking.

If there is an authority out there who can confirm or refute this please do. Please no "opinions" if you are a cop, lawyer or judge familiar with this law please clarify.
