When traffic control signals are not in place or not in operation, the driver of a vehicle shall yield the right-of-way, slowing down or stopping if need be to so yield, to a pedestrian crossing the roadway within a crosswalk when the pedestrian is upon the half of the roadway upon which the vehicle is traveling, or when the pedestrian is approaching so closely from the opposite half of the roadway as to be in danger.
No pedestrian shall suddenly leave a curb or other place of safety and walk or run into the path of a vehicle which is so close that it is impossible for the driver to yield.
Whenever any vehicle is stopped at a marked crosswalk or at any unmarked crosswalk at an intersection to permit a pedestrian to cross the roadway, the driver of any other vehicle approaching from the rear shall not overtake and pass such stopped vehicle.
Pedestrians shall move, whenever practicable, upon the right half of crosswalks.

At intersections where traffic is controlled, pedestrians shall not cross the roadway against a red signal and shall not cross at any place except a crosswalk. A pedestrian crossing or starting across any such crosswalk on a green signal shall have the right-of-way over all vehicles, including those making turns, until such pedestrian has reached the opposite curb or safety zone.
No pedestrian shall cross a roadway at any place other than by a route at right angles to the curb or by the shortest route to the opposite curb except in a crosswalk.

No pedestrian shall cross the roadway within a business district at any place other than a crosswalk. Outside the business districts, any pedestrian crossing at a point other than a crosswalk shall yield the right-of-way to motor vehicles upon the roadway; provided, that this Section shall not relieve the driver of a motor vehicle from the duty to exercise the highest degree of care under circumstances for the safety of pedestrians.
Where sidewalks are provided, it shall be unlawful for any pedestrian to walk along and upon an adjacent roadway.
Where sidewalks are not provided, any pedestrian walking along and upon a highway shall, when practicable, walk only on the left side of the roadway or its shoulder facing traffic which may approach from the opposite direction.

The operator of a motor vehicle overtaking a bicycle proceeding in the same direction on the roadway, as defined in Section 300.010, shall leave a safe distance when passing the bicycle, and shall maintain clearance until safely past the overtaken bicycle.
