[Ord. No. 1796-00 §1, 8-1-2000]
Whenever special pedestrian control signals exhibiting the words "Walk" or "Don't Walk" are in place such signals shall indicate as follows:
"WALK": Pedestrians facing such signal may proceed across the roadway in the direction of the signal and shall be given the right-of-way by the drivers of all vehicles;
"WAIT" or "DON'T WALK": No pedestrian shall start to cross the roadway in the direction of such signal, but any pedestrian who has partially completed his/her crossing on the walk signal shall proceed to a sidewalk or safety zone while the wait signal is showing.
Editor's Note — Ord. no. 2299-09 §1, adopted March 3, 2009, repealed section 880.020 "pedestrians' right of way in crosswalks" in its entirety. Former section 880.020 derived from ord. no. 1796-00 §1, 8-1-2000.
[Ord. No. 1796-00 §1, 8-1-2000; Ord. No. 2299-09 §1, 3-3-2009]
Pedestrians shall move, whenever practicable, upon the right half (½) of crosswalks.
No pedestrian shall cross a roadway at any place other than by a route at right angles to the curb or by the shortest route to the opposite curb except in a crosswalk.
Every pedestrian crossing a roadway at any point other than within a marked crosswalk or within an unmarked crosswalk at an intersection shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles upon the roadway.
No pedestrian shall cross a roadway intersection diagonally.
Where sidewalks are provided, it shall be unlawful for any pedestrian to walk along and upon an adjacent roadway.
Where sidewalks are not provided, any pedestrian walking along and upon a highway shall, when practicable, walk only on the left side of the roadway or its shoulder facing traffic which may approach from the opposite direction and shall walk outside of the main traveled portion of the roadway.
No pedestrian shall suddenly leave a curb or other place of safety and walk or run into the path of a vehicle which is so close that it is impossible for the driver to yield.
Unless otherwise directed by a pedestrian control signal as provided in this Chapter, pedestrians facing any green signal, except when the sole green signal is a turn arrow, may proceed with caution across the roadway within any marked or unmarked crosswalk.
Pedestrians facing a steady yellow signal, unless otherwise directed by a pedestrian control signal as provided herein are thereby advised that there is insufficient time to cross the roadway before a red indication is shown and no pedestrian shall then start to cross the roadway.
Unless otherwise directed by a pedestrian control signal as provided herein, pedestrians facing a steady red signal alone shall not enter the roadway.
