Pedestrians (205 to 210)



Drive carefully and slowly when

- in crowded shopping streets, Home Zones and Quiet Lanes (see Rule 218) or residential areas

- driving past bus and tram stops; pedestrians may emerge suddenly into the road

- passing parked vehicles, especially ice cream vans; children are more interested in ice cream than traffic and may run into the road unexpectedly

- needing to cross a pavement, cycle lane or cycle track; for example, to reach or leave a driveway or private access. Give way to pedestrians on the pavement and cyclists using a cycle lane or cycle track

- reversing into a side road; look all around the vehicle and give way to any pedestrians who may be crossing the road
turning at road junctions; you should give way to pedestrians who are crossing or waiting to cross the road into which or from which you are turning

- going through road works or when passing roadside rescue and recovery vehicles, as there may be people working in or at the side of the road

- the pavement is closed due to street repairs and pedestrians are directed to use the road

- approaching pedestrians on narrow rural roads without a footway or footpath. Always slow down and be prepared to stop if necessary, giving them plenty of room as you drive past

- approaching zebra and parallel crossings as you MUST give way to pedestrians and cyclists on the crossing (see Rule 195)

- approaching pedestrians who have started to cross the road ahead of you. They have priority when crossing at a junction or side road so you should give way (see Rule H2).

Brilliant for the multiple choice bit of the theory. Never looked at the highway code, just went through all of the practice questions in this (free version) over a few hours and passed my test 48/50.
