Pedestrian Laws In Florida
According to Florida law, a vehicle approaching a pedestrian that is legally crossing the street must yield or stop to allow them to cross. This applies to those walking or on a bicycle. Pedestrians may not cross in between signalized intersections except in marked crosswalks. All sides of the intersection are crosswalks, whether they are marked or not, and thus apply to this law. Pedestrians can enter the road at any time. However, they must give drivers the right time and distance to stop. We can evaluate the details of your accident to determine whether any laws were violated to determine negligence.
