  • The duty to share the roadway with a pedestrian:

    Posted By Page1Admin || 15-Jan-2011

    A pedestrian is an individual who is traveling on the roadway on foot. An operator of a motor vehicle has the same duty to exercise ordinary care when confronted with pedestrians sharing the roadway. The pedestrian must also exercise ordinary care to avoid being injured by motor vehicles. So, the obligations of the motor vehicle operator and the pedestrian are reciprocal, which means that each has a duty to take care that they are not injured as a result of acting carelessly. For instance, the pedestrian has a duty to stop, look, and listen for oncoming traffic, trains, or other potential causes of injury to him. The driver has a duty to be on the lookout for a pedestrian.
