RECENT PEDESTRIAN INJURIES CAUSE WSP TO URGE PEDESTRIAN AWARENESS, SAFETY
December 22, 2009



(REGIONAL) -- The Washington State Patrol reminds pedestrians to be particularly watchful and safe this holiday season and, when possible, to utilize available crosswalks or other designated pedestrian crossings when crossing a roadway.

In some situations Washington State law does not require the use of crosswalks or other designated pedestrian crossings on non-limited access highways.

However, when crossing at an unmarked location pedestrians are required to yield the right of way to all passing vehicles.

When a crosswalk or other designated pedestrian crossings are not available the WSP recommends crossing at a well-lit and straight section of the roadway. Avoid high traffic areas, and dark and/or curved section of the roadway.

The WSP sends the reminder in light of recent collisions involving pedestrians on the Benson Highway (SR- 515) in Kent.

On December 17, Maximiliano Diaz-Salazar, a 58 year-old Kent resident, was struck and killed by a passing motorist as he was attempting to cross a 5-lane section of the Benson Highway at 220th Place S.E.

On October 27, Timsina Narmada, a 22 year-old Kent resident, was struck by a passing motorist as she was attempting to cross a 5-lane section of the Benson Highway at the 22400 block. She is still recovering from her injuries.

Both investigations determined that neither Diaz-Salazar nor Narmada were crossing the roadway lawfully. Neither was using the proper safety precautions or utilizing marked crosswalks or other designated pedestrian crossings.

RCW (Revised Code Of Washington) 46.61.240 states the following:

1) Every pedestrian crossing a roadway at any point other than within a marked crosswalk or within an unmarked crosswalk at an intersection shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles upon the roadway.

(2) Where curb ramps exist at or adjacent to intersections or at marked crosswalks in other locations, disabled persons may enter the roadway from the curb ramps and cross the roadway within or as closely as practicable to the crosswalk. All other pedestrian rights and duties as defined elsewhere in this chapter remain applicable.

(3) Any pedestrian crossing a roadway at a point where a pedestrian tunnel or overhead pedestrian crossing has been provided shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles upon the roadway.

(4) Between adjacent intersections at which traffic-control signals are in operation pedestrians shall not cross at any place except in a marked crosswalk.

(5) No pedestrian shall cross a roadway intersection diagonally unless authorized by official traffic-control devices; and, when authorized to cross diagonally, pedestrians shall cross only in accordance with the official traffic-control devices pertaining to such crossing movements.

(6) No pedestrian shall cross a roadway at an unmarked crosswalk where an official sign prohibits such crossing
