Many of us have been in the situation where we are driving down the road and see a pedestrian trying to cross. Should we stop and let the person cross? What if the other driver doesn't stop and we put the pedestrian in harm's way? Does the pedestrian ever have the right-of-way?
Taking an evening stroll or walking home from work should not place you in harm's way. Traffic regulations and road safety signs and signals are in place to keep both motorists and pedestrians safe.
