REMINDER: NEW ONTARIO CROSSOVER LAW

By now most of us are aware of the new Ontario crossover law that says:

Drivers (including cyclists) must stop and yield the whole roadway at pedestrian crossovers, school crossings and other locations where there is a crossing guard.

Only when pedestrians and school crossing guards have crossed and are safely on the sidewalk can drivers and cyclists proceed.

These new rules do not apply to pedestrian crosswalks at intersections with stop signs or traffic signals, unless a school crossing guard is present.

View the comparison graphic below to learn the differences.

WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES?
Drivers will be fined $150 to $500 and 3 demerit points for offences at pedestrian crossings, school crossings and at crosswalks where there are traffic signals. The maximum fine for running a red light - a practice that puts pedestrians at risk - is $200 to $1000. Fines are doubled in Community Safety Zones, near schools and public areas. These areas are clearly marked with signs.
