CASE LAW - R v Khan
Shan Khan was a pedestrian trying to cross 152nd Street at 81st Avenue in Surrey. She crossed to the median barrier dividing the four lanes of traffic and waited for the approaching vehicles to stop. When the vehicle using the lane nearest to her did stop, she began to cross. Unfortunately the driver behind that vehicle did not stop, changed lanes to pass it and struck Ms. Khan.
Following an investigation police Ms. Khan was issued a traffic ticket for jaywalking or not being in a crosswalk, failing to yield to traffic.
Judicial Justice Mayner examined the circumstances and found that Ms. Khan was using an unmarked crosswalk at the intersection and had not been in violation of section 180 MVA.
