Drivers have a duty to yield to pedestrians in a crosswalk. Some crosswalks are marked in Nova Scotia, others are not. Our firm considers every intersection to have a crosswalk, whether it is marked or not.
Common Crosswalk Accidents Causes
Sometimes pedestrians may not obey traffic signals in a crosswalk and be issued a ticket for failing to do so, such as failing to activate crossing lights. Failure to activate crossing lights, or being issued a ticket as a pedestrian does not necessarily mean you cannot bring a personal injury claim.
