    New Rules on Pedestrian Crossovers

    August 23, 2016
    Filed Under:
    Car Insurance

    Effective Jan 1, 2016, driver (including cyclists) must stop and yield the who roadway at:

    • pedestrian crossovers and
    • at school crossings where there is a crossing guard displaying a school crossing stop sign.

    These rules apply at pedestrian crossovers identified with specific signs, road markings and lights-the new rules do not apply to pedestrian crosswalks at intersections with stop signs or traffic signals, unless a school crossing guard is present. 

    The new law, part of Making Ontario's Roads Safer Act, also provides municipal road authorities the ability to install new types of pedestrian crossovers on low speed, low volume roads in addition to the existing crossovers. see http://www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/safety/pedestrian-safety.shtml
