PEDESTRIAN'S RIGHTS AND DUTIES
11. Pedestrian's Right-of-Way at Crosswalks.
(1) The driver of a vehicle shall yield the right-of-way, slowing down or stopping if need be to so yield, to a pedestrian crossing the roadway within a crosswalk when the pedestrian:
(a) is upon the half of the roadway upon which the vehicle is travelling, or
(b) is approaching so closely from the opposite half of the roadway as to be in danger, provided that no pedestrian shall 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, subject to the provisions contained in this by-law.
(2) Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (1) of this section no driver shall be guilty of an offence where a pedestrian is crossing the roadway within a crosswalk contrary to the lawful order, direction, signal or command made or given by a police officer in the performance of the officer's duty in directing or regulating traffic or contrary to the direction, instruction, limitation, restriction, or prohibition of any applicable traffic sign or traffic-control signal.
(3) No person shall start to cross any street in front of a bus which has stopped to load or unload passengers unless such crossing is made in compliance with traffic-control signals or the direction of a police officer. This provision shall not apply where such bus has stopped at its regular terminus.
(4) Whenever any vehicle has stopped or slowed down 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 such vehicle.
