What is a pedestrian crossover?

A pedestrian crossover is a designated crossing area that allows pedestrians to safely cross the road where vehicles must yield to the pedestrian. Pedestrian crossovers are identified by specific pavement markings and crossing signs. Some crossovers may include yellow rectangular rapid flashing beacons. The signs have a white background with an image of a pedestrian and the text “stop for pedestrians.” The pavement markings include a yield to pedestrian line which is a series of white triangles, and a ‘ladder crosswalk’ which alternates thick white lines and areas with no markings.

Pedestrians have the right of way at pedestrian crossovers, drivers and cyclists must stop behind the yield line and wait until the pedestrian completely crosses the road before proceeding.

It is important that drivers, cyclists and pedestrians each know their role when approaching a pedestrian crossover.
