You must share the road with pedestrians. Special markings on the road show where pedestrians have special rights.You must give way to pedestrians crossing the road into which you are turning.

You must also give way to pedestrians – even if there is no marked pedestrian crossing – if there is any danger of colliding with them.

Pedestrian crossings

Pedestrian crossings allow people to cross the road safely. These crossings are usually marked by white stripes on the road and are also known as zebra crossings.

Some pedestrian crossings have zig zag lines marked on the road before the crossing. Take extra care when you see a zig zag line on the road as this means you are approaching a crossing which you may not be able to see because of a curve, crest or dip in the road.

Do not overtake any vehicle that is stopping or has stopped at a crossing.

Pedestrian refuges

A pedestrian refuge is an island in the middle of the road. The island allows pedestrians to cross the road in two stages.

Approaches to pedestrian refuges are signposted. When you are approaching a pedestrian refuge you should look out for pedestrians.
