Houston Crosswalk Laws and Safety Tips for Pedestrians

By Texas Personal Injury Lawyer on December 1, 2023

In compliance with Texas law, pedestrians have the right of way in crosswalks, and drivers owe them a duty of care. Relevant local laws dictate that vehicles must yield to pedestrians in crosswalks, and failure to do so can have legal consequences. In the unfortunate event of a crosswalk accident, drivers may face liability for injuries caused due to failure to yield. To enhance crosswalk safety, all road users must prioritize pedestrian safety.
