A pedestrian crossover is a specific type of crossing that requires vehicles to stop and allow pedestrians to cross the road.
Pedestrian crossovers have specific pavement markings and crossing signs. Some have illuminated overhead lights / warning signs and pedestrian push buttons.
Pedestrians have the right of way at pedestrian crossovers. Drivers and cyclists must stop behind the yield line and wait until the pedestrian completely crosses the road before proceeding.
All road users must obey pedestrian crossover rules at all times of the day and night.
Drivers and cyclists may face a fine of $1000. Drivers may also face four demerit points.
