MINNESOTA CROSS WALK LAW PROTECTS THE PEDESTRIAN CROSSING AT AN INTERSECTION.
The personal injury lawyers at the Schmidt Salita Law Team want to call your attention the the online posting from the Minnesota Safety Council regarding pedestrian’s rights in crosswalks in Minnesota. www.minnesotasafetycouncil.org/facts/sheet.cfm?qs=BD3BE1A3335E.
This fact sheet lists the following:
- Intersections with Marked Crosswalks: Drivers of motor vehicles are required to stop and yield to pedestrians crossing at marked crosswalks.
- Intersections without Marked Crosswalks: Drivers of motor vehicles are also required to stop and yield to pedestrians at intersections without marked crosswalks or traffic lights.
- Stop and Yield: vehicles stopped for pedestrians are allowed to proceed only after the pedestrian has completely crossed the lane in front of the stopped vehicle.
- Passing at an Intersection: it is illegal for a driver of another vehicle approaching from the rear to pass the stopped vehicle that is stopped at an intersection to allow pedestrians to cross the roadway.
