The use of pelican crossings is governed by traffic lights. When a pedestrian wants to cross, they push a button and wait for the green person to light up. The traffic lights will change to red simultaneously to warn oncoming vehicles to stop.

Rules for drivers:

The traffic lights for cars will turn red and signal that you must stop when a pedestrian presses the button on a pelican crossing. If the light flashes amber, you may only go if there are no people present or attempting to cross the road.

Rules for pedestrians:

Push the button and wait for the green person to light up if you want to use a pelican crossing. You must not enter the road if a red person is displayed.
