Georgia Laws About Pedestrian Rights And Determining Fault In Accidents

Georgia Code Section 40-6-92 outlines the rights and responsibilities of pedestrians within the state. According to this statute:

  • Pedestrian right-of-way: Pedestrians have the right-of-way at crosswalks, whether marked or unmarked unless traffic control signals indicate otherwise.
  • Crossing outside crosswalks: When crossing outside a marked or unmarked crosswalk, pedestrians must yield the right-of-way to vehicles unless directed by traffic control signals.
  • Sidewalk use: Pedestrians are required to use sidewalks where provided. If no sidewalk is available, pedestrians should walk on the left side of the roadway or its shoulder facing traffic.
  • Walking on roadways: Pedestrians walking on roadways without sidewalks should do so on the left side of the road, facing traffic.

Determining fault in pedestrian accidents involves carefully examining the incident’s circumstances. Some common tactics to explore include:

  • Eyewitness testimonies
  • Traffic camera footage
  • Police reports
  • Expert analysis
  • Driver and pedestrian behavior
