Stopping for pedestrian crossings

Pedestrian crossovers (commonly called crosswalks) are designated areas that allow pedestrians to safely cross roads where there are no traffic lights. Always watch for pedestrians and people using wheel­chairs at these crossings. Pedestrians may push a button to make overhead yellow lights flash to warn drivers. Pedestrians should point across the road to show they want to cross before entering the roadway. Drivers, including cyclists, must stop and allow pedestrians to cross. Once people have cleared your side of the road, you can proceed with caution. Do not pass any vehicle within 30 metres of a pedestrian crossover. Never pass a vehicle that has stopped to allow pedestrians to cross the road.
