Under the Alberta Traffic Safety Act, drivers must yield the right of way to pedestrians in a crosswalk or pedestrians legally crossing a road. Injuries to pedestrians are most often the result of drivers who:

  • Drive without the proper care and attention
  • Fail to observe posted speed limits
  • Disregard weather or traffic conditions
  • Disobey traffic signs or signals
  • Fail to yield the right of way to pedestrians at marked crosswalks
  • Fail to come to a complete stop at a stop sign
  • Fail to stop before turning right on red at an intersection
  • Drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
