Alhambra Source and the Alhambra Police Department have launched an initiative to engage more minority residents in the community. As part of this new project, we re-launched our "Ask an Alhambra cop" column with Chief Mark Yokoyama. Got a question? Submit it below or send it to [email protected]!

Who is responsible if a driver hits a pedestrian who is crossing the street without following a traffic signal or using a crosswalk?

Pedestrians and vehicles both have responsibilities on the road, and the laws differ depending on the circumstances. That being said, if a pedestrian has entered any marked or unmarked crosswalk, drivers must stop and wait until the pedestrian has reached his or her destination — curb to curb. If it can be determined that the pedestrian entered the lane of traffic against traffic control signals, a pedestrian can be placed at fault for an accident.

California Vehicle Code Section 21950 also states that pedestrians must still use caution and cross safely. Pedestrians should not walk or run into the path of a vehicle, cause a road hazard, or unnecessarily stop or delay traffic while in a marked or unmarked crosswalk.

Alhambra Source y la Policía de Alhambra están empezando una iniciativa para involucrar a más residentes de la minoría en la comunidad. Como parte de este nuevo proyecto, estamos relanzando nuestro "Pregunte a un cop Alhambra" columna con el sargento Jerry Johnson. ¿Tienes una pregunta? Enviar por debajo o enviarlo a [email protected]

¿Quién es responsable si un chofer atropella a un peatón que cruza la calle sin obedecer la señal de tráfico o no usa el crucero de peatones?

Ambos peatones y vehículos tienen responsabilidades en el camino y las leyes varían, dependiendo de la circunstancias. Habiendo dicho eso, si el peatón entra un crucero marcado o sin marcar, el chofer debe parar y esperar a que llegue al final — de banqueta a banqueta. Si se determina que el peatón entro al carril de trafico contra una señal de control de tráfico, puede culparse al peatón por el accidente.

Código Vehicular de California, Sección 21950, también dice que peatones aún tendrán que emplear precaución y cuidado al cruzar. Peatones no deberán caminar o correr en el carril en el cual corren vehículos, causar peligro en el camino, o parar o dilatar el tráfico sin necesidad mientras se encuentran en un crucero marcado o sin marcar.

阿市新闻和阿市警察局将合作来更好的为社区的少数族裔居民服务。做为新项目的一部分,我们将启动一个“咨询阿市警察”专栏,由Jerry Johnson警官来回答你的问题。请将你的问题发至:[email protected] 谢谢 或在下面提交。 

如果过马路的时候,行人在没有遵守红绿灯或人行道的情况下被撞,这将是谁的责任?

行人和车辆在道路上都是有责任的,法律在不同情况下会有不同的适用。即使这样,如果一位行人进入了有或没有标记的人行道,驾驶必须停车,等行人穿越后才可行驶。如果认定行人在违反信号灯指示情况下进入了道路中,行人是会承担车祸的责任的。

加州汽车法典21950条同时表示行人在穿越时必须小心,安全过马路。行人不应该走或奔入汽车的行径道路中造成道路危险,或在有标记或无标记的人行道中有不必要的停留造成交通延误。
