Road Safety – Zebra Crossings

I see people, in particular drivers, who quite simply, do not know how to use a Zebra Crossing.

The Highway Code states “Drivers and riders should give way to pedestrians waiting to cross and MUST give way to pedestrians on a zebra crossing” HighWaycode. But it also says “Remember that traffic does not have to stop until someone has moved onto the crossing.

So basically, if someone is waiting, but they have their foot on the crossing, they are on the crossing and the traffic must stop. Some drivers may not spot the fact that the have their foot on the crossing, in which case they are not fully paying attention.

There are also some interesting tips on how to use a Zebra Crossing from RED Driving School.

Be safe on the roads.
