You need to check as you are turning. Slow down your vehicle and give priority to the pedestrian who is crossing the road.
Pelican Crossings are the crossings which are signal-controlled crossings where flashing amber follows the red 'Stop' light. This crossing is made aware to the drivers with its traffic lights and zig-zag road markings.
As a driver, you MUST give way to any pedestrians on the crossing, when the amber light is flashing. If the amber light is flashing and there are no pedestrians on the crossing, you may proceed with caution.
After the lights start flashing, watch out for people making a last-minute dash. Be prepared to let them cross but no not wave others onto the crossing.
The approach to, and exit from, a pedestrian crossing is marked with zigzag lines. It also means that you must not park on them or overtake the leading vehicle when approaching the crossing. Parking here would block the view for pedestrians and the approaching traffic.
You should not wave or use your horn to invite pedestrians to let them know that they can cross as this could be dangerous if another vehicle is approaching. It should be left to the pedestrians to decide for themselves when it is safe to cross.
As you are approach a crossing
Watch out for pedestrian walking close to crossings as they may start to cross without looking at the traffic.
