[Order of 5-2-2009 §109.010]
Pedestrians are subject to traffic signals as are declared in this code. At all other places pedestrians have those rights and are subject to the restrictions stated in this Chapter.
[Order of 5-2-2009 §109.020]
A. 
When traffic signals are not in place or not in operation, the driver of a vehicle shall stop for a pedestrian crossing the roadway within the crosswalk when the pedestrian is on the half of the roadway on which the vehicle is traveling. Such driver shall also stop when the pedestrian is approaching so closely from the opposite half of the roadway as to be in danger. Such driver shall slow down or stop if need be to give the right-of-way to a pedestrian.
B. 
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 stop or yield. A pedestrian's right-of-way in a crosswalk is modified under the condition and as stated in Section 335.050(B).
C. 
Whenever any vehicle is stopped at a marked crosswalk or at any unmarked crosswalk at an intersection to permit a pedestrian to cross the roadway, the driver of any other vehicle approaching from the rear shall not overtake and pass the stopped vehicle.
D. 
School and other pedestrian crossings are established by crosswalks as set out in Schedule VI.

Pedestrians shall move upon the right-half of a crosswalk whenever practicable.
[Order of 5-2-2009 §109.040]
No pedestrian shall cross a road at any place other than by a path at right angles to the curb or by the shortest path to the opposite curb, except when in a crosswalk.
[Order of 5-2-2009 §109.050]
A. 
Every pedestrian crossing a roadway at any point, other than within a marked crosswalk or other than crossing a roadway within an unmarked crosswalk at an intersection, shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles upon the roadway.

Any pedestrian crossing a roadway at a point where a pedestrian tunnel or overhead crossing has been provided shall yield the right-of-way to any vehicle upon the roadway.
