What is an Unmarked Crosswalk?

Posted by attorney Jared Everton

A crosswalk can be marked or unmarked. An unmarked crosswalk can be found in the elongation of two sidewalks from one side of the street to the other. A pedestrian enjoys the same protections in an unmarked crosswalk as a marked crosswalk.

Automobile drivers must exercise reasonable care while operating their vehicles, taking note of pedestrians and bicyclist who are crossing the street in a marked or unmarked crosswalk.
