[Added 6-20-2017 by Ord. No. 2017-05]
A. 
Definitions. For the purpose of this section, unless otherwise expressly stated, the following words and phrases shall have the meanings respectively ascribed to them as follows:
HIGHWAY
As defined in § 340.01(22), Wis. Stats., all public ways and thoroughfares and bridges on the same. It includes the entire width between the boundary lines of every way open to the use of the public as a matter of right for the purposes of vehicular travel. It includes those roads or driveways in the state, county or municipal parks and in state forests which have been opened to the use of the public for the purpose of vehicular travel and roads or driveways upon the grounds of public schools, as defined in § 115.01(1), Wis. Stats., and institutions under the jurisdiction of the County Board of Supervisors, but does not include private roads or driveways as defined in § 340.01(46), Wis. Stats.
MEDIAN
An area dividing opposing lanes of traffic, excluding turn lanes. They can be comprised of raised islands or surface level pavement marking and may also encompass pedestrian safety zones.
PEDESTRIAN
As defined in § 340.01(43), Wis. Stats., any person afoot or any person in a wheelchair, either manually or mechanically propelled, or other low-powered, mechanically propelled vehicle designed specifically for use by a physically disabled person, but does not include any person using an electric personal assistive mobility device.
PEDESTRIAN SAFETY ZONE
A raised island or median that divides a highway at an intersection or pedestrian crosswalk, usually separating opposing lanes of traffic, and offering refuge to pedestrians attempting to cross the highway, thereby allowing them to identify adequate gaps in a single direction of traffic before completing a crossing. Pedestrian safety zones are typically constructed at locations where speed and/or volume of traffic make crossing hazardous or the number of traffic lanes increases a pedestrian's exposure to traffic.
ROADWAY
As defined in § 340.01(54), Wis. Stats., that portion of a highway between the regularly established curblines or that portion which is improved, designed or ordinarily used for vehicular travel, excluding the berm or shoulder. In a divided highway the term "roadway" refers to each roadway separately but not to all such roadways collectively.
B.

(1) 
Except as otherwise specifically provided in this section, the statutory provisions of Ch. 346, Wis. Stats., describing and defining regulations and responsibilities with respect to presence of pedestrians on highways, excluding penalties to be imposed, are hereby adopted and by reference made a part of this section as if fully stated herein. Any future amendments, revisions, or modifications of the statutes incorporated herein are intended to be made part of this section.
C. 
To minimize the potential for conflict arising from a driver's obligation to yield to a pedestrian lawfully crossing a highway, which includes reducing speed or stopping if necessary, to avoid endangering, colliding with or interfering in any way with pedestrian travel, no pedestrian shall loiter or be dilatory in crossing the highway once traffic has yielded the right-of-way.
(1) 
Pedestrians may pause at a pedestrian safety zone located at an intersection or crosswalk, or a median being utilized for the same purpose, but must be expeditious in continuing across the remaining roadway once they have secured the right-of-way and an adequate gap exists to complete the crossing.
(2) 
It shall be deemed a violation of this section if a pedestrian fails to complete a crossing and remains in a pedestrian safety zone or on a median through two traffic control signal cycles or adequate gaps in traffic.
D. 
Penalty for violation of this section.
(1) 
Any person who shall violate any provision of this section shall, upon conviction thereof, forfeit an amount as prescribed in the Uniform Forfeiture and Bond Schedule, together with the cost of prosecution.
