Pedestrians share the roads with drivers and cyclists and must obey the road rules.
Pedestrians are vulnerable road users, so extra care is needed from all road users (including pedestrians themselves).
Drivers should give way to pedestrians:
Pedestrian crossings are marked by white or yellow stripes on the road and are usually signed. As a driver, approach a pedestrian crossing at a speed which allows you to stop safely if needed.
Pedestrians crossing at traffic lights must obey the signals. If a traffic control signal shows a steady or flashing red pedestrian light, and you have not already started to cross, then you must not do so until the pedestrian light changes to green.
