Pedestrian Duties Under Washington State Law - Part #1
Pedestrians have their own duties when it comes to rights of way. Because pedestrians have the additional problems of vulnerability and low visibility, they must take the extra step of exercising caution to ensure their own safety. For example, pedestrians shouldn't take obvious risks like stepping quickly into the road from between two parked vehicles. Although the right of way may favor the pedestrian over the motor vehicle operator, the size, speed, and relatively limited maneuverability of most vehicles means that pedestrians must shoulder some of the responsibility in avoiding collisions.
