Who is at Fault when a Pedestrian Runs into the Street and is Hit by a Car?
Motor vehicle drivers must obey all traffic laws and exercise due care while driving, to avoid an accident. However, pedestrians have a corresponding duty to exercise ordinary care to prevent an injury. Drivers and pedestrians who encounter each other on the public streets are entitled to expect each other to perform their legal duties and to obey all laws.
