In Street Pedestrian Crossing Sign Traffic Policy
Ped crossing sign_thumb.jpg
Both pedestrians and motorists in the State of Minnesota have rights and responsibilities on the roadway. Statistics and public response continue to reveal that the rights of pedestrians are not very well respected by motorists. This fact increases the potential for accidents and pedestrian injury at crosswalks.

The purpose of this policy is to allow the usage of and give guidance for the installation of the In-Street Pedestrian Crossing Sign in accordance with the Minnesota Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Streets and Highways (MMUTCD). The In-Street Pedestrian Crossing Sign may be used to remind road users of the Minnesota State Law that requires the driver of a vehicle to stop to yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian crossing the roadway within a marked crosswalk.
