Q&A - Pedestrians Must Yield to Vehicles Signage
My university workplace has just erected signage at a pedestrian crossing leading to a parking lot and I am just trying to determine if this is in contravention of current pedestrian right of way laws in BC (before I submit a formal complaint, so that I have all my facts). There is a one-way road/driveway which leads to a small employee only parking lot next a bus loop. At the pedestrian crossing of this road/driveway the sign reads, "Pedestrians yield to traffic." Should not traffic yield to pedestrians? Even at our pedestrian controlled intersections on campus, the buses & traffic have a hard time stopping to allow pedestrians to walk on the "walk signal." I think this new signage is just begging for an accident.
