Pedestrian Crossovers

As of January 1st, 2016 a new law that applies to pedestrian crossovers was introduced as part of Bill 31: Making Ontario's Roads Safer Act. The law provides municipal road authorities the ability to install pedestrian crossovers on low speed, low volume roads. On May 3rd, 2016 Municipal Council approved the implementation of a Pedestrian Crossover Program. More information about the law pertaining to pedestrian crossovers can be found through the Ontario Ministry of Transportation.

What is a Pedestrian Crossover?

A pedestrian crossover is a designated crossing area that allows pedestrians to safely cross the road where vehicles must yield to the pedestrian. Pedestrian crossovers are identified by specific pavement markings and crossing signs.

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, laws are in effect around- the- clock.

It is important that drivers, cyclists and pedestrians each know their role when approaching a pedestrian crossover.

  • Stop behind the yield line
  • Make eye contact so pedestrian sees you

  • Make eye contact to ensure driver sees you

Responsibilities of Cyclists

Fines and Penalties

Drivers and cyclists may face a fine in the range of $150-$500 – drivers may also face 3 demerit points.
