Using Crosswalk Laws as a Framework for Pedestrian Safety
Using the law as the framework for pedestrian safety campaigns is not the go-to choice for most safety advocates. Yet, when someone gets hurt or the police are urged to “do something,” it is the traffic law that governs what can be done. Pedestrian law advocate and lawyer Ray Thomas (Portland, Oregon) will present an overview of the nation’s crosswalk laws. Ray’s presentation will give attendees a better understanding of the legal framework that supports each pedestrian’s rights.
