As residents of Ontario are likely well aware, pedestrian accidents are an issue. When someone who is walking is struck by a vehicle the injuries inflicted can be devastating. Likely in an effort to reduce the number of these incidents that occur, the province recently passed a new law regarding crossovers. That law went into effect at the start of the year.

The law is specifically designed to keep crossing guards, pedestrians and schoolchildren who are crossing a street, safe. Now, when a driver comes upon a school crossing zone or crosswalk with lights, he or she must wait until the pedestrian has left the road completely, before they can proceed.

Individuals, who fail to comply with the new rule and are caught, could be fined. While the fine could total between $150 and $500, if the driver is caught breaking the law at a school crosswalk, the amount could be twice that amount.

Just how well police officers will be able to enforce the law remains to be seen. It is also unclear whether fewer pedestrians will be hurt in crashes as a result of the law. Regardless of the existence of the law, pedestrians who are hurt in an accident of this nature, or the family members of those who die, may be able take legal action against the driver of the car.
