New Jersey State Law Effective April 1, 2010
Motorists must stop for pedestrians in a crosswalk. Failure to observe the law may result in penalties and fines.
Pedestrians must obey pedestrian signals and use crosswalks at signalized intersections. Both carry fines for failure to observe the law.
Always cross at corners, within marked crosswalks where available.
If crossing in other locations, yield the right of way to vehicles.
Never cross from in-between parked cars.
Always walk facing traffic and wear reflective clothing when walking at night.
Watch for pedestrians when turning right on red.
Obey speed limits.
Whenever any vehicle is stopped to permit a pedestrian to cross the roadway, the driver of any other vehicle approaching from the rear shall not overtake and pass such stopped vehicle.
Do not block or park in crosswalks.
Be alert for pedestrians at all times.
Children & Seniors
Children and senior citizens are at a higher risk of being struck by a motor vehicle. Special emphasis must be made to educate children and seniors about the importance of walking safely.
