Pedestrians usually have the right-of-way while walking in a crosswalk. In Louisiana, motorists must yield to pedestrians in a variety of situations. For instance, when traffic-control signals are not in place, the driver of a vehicle must stop and yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian crossing the roadway. Also, the law requires that vehicle drivers exercise due care in avoiding collisions with pedestrians.
