Crosswalk Law in Georgia

According to O.C.G.A. 40-6-91: the "driver of a vehicle shall stop and remain stopped to allow a pedestrian to cross the roadway within a crosswalk" when the pedestrian is approaching or is upon the roadway upon which the vehicle is traveling. And pedestrians have the responsibility to exercise common sense when traversing crosswalks; they should not "leave a curb or other place of safety" and get in the path of a vehicle so suddenly it is nearly impossible for the driver to avoid them.

Bicyclists, on the other hand, should not be riding down crosswalks at all. Children are allowed to ride on sidewalks; however, even they have to dismount before traversing a crosswalk with their bicycles. Not only does bicycling down crosswalks put pedestrians at risk, but it also puts the bicyclist at risk since turning vehicles may not see the bicyclist coming.

Driver's Duty of Care at Crosswalks

When approaching a crosswalk, motorists have the duty of care to follow the rules of the road and look out for any pedestrians, joggers and bicyclists before crossing. Failing to do so may constitute an act of negligence. Forms of driver negligence that commonly cause crosswalk accidents include:

When children are present, a driver's duty of care is enhanced. Motorists who negligently cause accidents at common play areas, such as parks and schools, may be subjected to stiffer fines and other civil penalties.
