Crosswalk Accidents

Arizona Right Of Way Law

In the state of Arizona, pedestrians using a crosswalk have right-of-way over oncoming vehicles in the same half of the roadway, or when the pedestrian is close enough to the half of the road the vehicle is in to be considered in danger if the vehicle continued moving forward. The only times vehicles have right-of-way at a crosswalk are when the vehicle is too close to come to a complete stop while the pedestrian is still on the sidewalk, when the pedestrian is crossing the street using an unmarked crosswalk, when the pedestrian is crossing outside of a marked crosswalk or when there is a cross signal indicating they should not begin crossing.
