Pennsylvania crosswalk rules

Pedestrians are vulnerable when crossing roads. So, Pennsylvania law has certain mechanisms in place for protecting them. Among the main ones are the rules on crosswalks.

Under state law, when pedestrians are in crosswalks, motor vehicles are required to stop for them. Drivers who fail to do this can receive fines. As a note, the requirement to stop does not extend to situations in which pedestrians are just standing on sidewalks.
