Texas Highway Safety Laws
Section 552 of The Texas Transportation Code deal with various pedestrian crossing rules. Here are the pedestrian laws:
If you are at a crosswalk with a Walk/Don't Walk sign or other control signal, you must obey the control signal. You can only cross when you have the Walk signal; otherwise, you must yield right of way to oncoming traffic.
If you are crossing at a crosswalk but there is no control signal present, you as the pedestrian have the right of way if:
If you are crossing the street at a point other than a crosswalk, you must yield right-of-way to vehicles in the roadway. If you are not crossing in a marked crosswalk, the oncoming traffic has the right of way.
If you or someone you love has been injured in an accident which was not their fault, it is important that you consult with a board certified personal injury lawyer.
