Crosswalk Accidents

Did You Suffer A Serious Injury?

Pedestrians are among the most vulnerable victims during car crashes. Unlike motorists and their passengers, pedestrians lack the protection a vehicle provides. 5,376 pedestrians were killed in 2015 in car crashes according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that another 129,000 were taken to the hospital to receive emergency care after being hit by a vehicle that same year.

Tennessee Crosswalk Law

TCA 55-8-134 outlines the protections pedestrians should expect when using a crosswalk. The law states that:

  • Oncoming vehicles must yield the right-of-way to pedestrians on the same half of the road they are travelling on, or pedestrians who are close enough while approaching that half of the road to pose a potential danger.
  • Oncoming vehicles must come to a complete stop when pedestrians are using a crosswalk in a marked school zone with warning flashers in operation regardless of the half of the road they are on.
  • Vehicles approaching from the rear may not overtake and pass any vehicle stopped at a marked or unmarked crosswalk.
