When traffic control signals are not in place or in operation, 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 is upon the half of the roadway upon which the vehicle is traveling or when the pedestrian is approaching so closely from the opposite half of the roadway as to be in danger. FS 316.130 (7 – partial)
The law is Florida Statute 316.130 Pedestrian obedience to traffic control devices and traffic regulations.. The crossing is one of many on Lake Hollingsworth Drive. Do you stop for pedestrians in the crosswalk? For that matter, do you obey the 30mph speed limit?
