Fact or Fiction: Pedestrians Always Have the Right of Way


Pedestrian safety is a serious issue. According to the Utah Driver Handbook, a pedestrian is a person on foot or who uses a conveyance such as skates, skateboard, et., other than a bicycle.  Pedestrian deaths occur in 17 percent of all traffic fatalities!  Considering how dangerous and deadly pedestrian accidents can be, it would seem logical that pedestrians always have the right of way.  This is FALSE, PEDESTRIANS DO NOT ALWAYS HAVE THE RIGHT OF WAY.
