Saratoga PD Really Needed To Define This Law
A law many should know, most do, little think about on the road, and many are ignorant about. Myself included.
Now, I happened to address this law last week with an article about pedestrians crossing the street. Many of you were commenting on Facebook for and against my thought process. I suppose Saratoga Springs is shedding some light on which side of the argument is really the correct one.
I am completely wrong, at least when it comes to the law. Morally I am still holding my ground on the matter I witnessed last week. CLICK HERE for more on that story.
The official law about pedestrians crossing the street gives them the right of way but only in a crosswalk. This is regardless of a functioning or present signal. Moral of the story, watch out for crossing pedestrians in a crosswalk and for pedestrians use your judgment and just don't assume a car will be able to come to a screeching halt.
