Can you answer this question? If a pedestrian starts to cross the street at an intersection on the "go" signal but the light flashes "stop" before he reaches the other side, does he continue to have the right of way iover vehicles until he gets across? Many drivers make mistakes in this suitation. Do you? Is the responbility here entirely with | the pedestrian ir with the driver? Here is the answer: It is the responsibility of the driver, in such a case, to see that pedestrians are permitted to get to the sidewalk. Here are some rules for pedestrians that were commented on in my recent safetygrstms. The pedestrian problem is becoming very acute, and those of us who are pedestrians should pay particular heed to the following: 'Walk only on sidewalks wherever they are available. Cross streets only at crosswalk? ' Observe traffic signals. Never depend on the automobile driver. Wear something white that wiT reflect Wght. Brosmers to Chicago Mr. and Mrs. Chas.
