Beaumont RCMP would like to remind citizens about the rules of the road when it comes to crosswalks. Failing to stop for a pedestrian in the crosswalk results in an $810.00 fine plus demerits. Pedestrians have the right of way in a crosswalk unless it is controlled by a traffic control device or traffic is being directed by a flag person. In such cases, the pedestrian has the right of way when directed by the control person or the device. As a driver, it is important to remember to wait until the pedestrian has fully crossed the roadway before proceeding. As a pedestrian, it is important to stop before walking onto the roadway, make eye contact with the drivers if possible, and avoid being distracted (such as using a phone) while crossing the road.
