Highway Code rules 18 to 30 cover rules for using pedestrian crossings and islands, and rules 191-199 cover rules for drivers using crossings.


Don’t park on a crossing or in the area covered by the zig-zag lines, and don’t overtake near a crossing whether the vehicle is moving or has stopped at the crossing.

If there’s a queue of traffic your vision might obscured. Pedestrians might be crossing between stationary vehicles.

Keep crossings clear, even if there’s a queue of traffic. Blocking crossings makes it difficult for disabled people to cross, and also puts your vehicle at risk of minor damage if pedestrians are filtering around it.

Allow pedestrians enough time to cross; don’t rev your engine or pressure them to move faster.

As you approach a zebra crossing:

- look out for pedestrians waiting to cross and be ready to slow down or stop to let them cross. You should be able to tell from their position and body language that they are waiting.

- if a pedestrian is already on the crossing, then you must give way to them

- if it’s wet or slippery, allow more time to stop. In busier areas where there is a lot of pedestrian activity be ready to brake coming up to a crossing

- don’t wave a person across a crossing. They must be able to make the decision themselves. If you wave them on, there might be another vehicle coming that hasn’t seen them

- be aware of pedestrians crossing from the right, even if there is a pedestrian refuge/island.

If you are at a pelican crossing, you will get a flashing amber signal after the red stop light. You must give way to pedestrians on the crossing when the signal is amber. If there are no pedestrians when the signal is flashing amber, you can proceed if it’s safe to do so. At a toucan crossing there’s no flashing amber signal so you must wait until your light turns green before you can proceed.

In any crossing, if your lights turn green but there are still pedestrians on the crossing you must give way to them.
