Can someone perhaps point me in the correct direction about where I can find the regulation regarding pedestrian crossings? I specifically would like to know what the rules is for both pedestrians and motorists where there are these diagonal zigzag lines on the shoulder of the road before the zebra lines over the road. My interpretation is that when a pedestrian approaches the crossing, and there already is a vehicle inside these zigzag lines, the pedestrian have to wait for the vehicle. However, when a pedestrian already is at the zebra crossing, and the vehicle is still outside of these lines, the pedestrian has the right of way and the vehicle should then stop.
I no doubt will get a lot of personal opinions how they think it should be, but I would like to have the correct regulation which I can refer to. I did scan through the road traffic act, but cannot find any information specifically on these types of crossings. I need this for a safety presentation I need to make in about two weeks time.
Thanks in advance!
