Carole asked: At a 4 way intersection, I have the permitted light to cross, yet the cars on my left have a green light and start to take a right onto the road I’m trying to cross. Today, dozens of cars took the right, so that the crossing light counted down to zero and I was unable to cross. Who in fact has the right-of-way?
Bicyclists on a sidewalk or crosswalk have the rights a duties of pedestrians.
s. 316.2065 – Bicycle Regulations
(9) A person propelling a vehicle by human power upon and along a sidewalk, or across a roadway upon and along a crosswalk, has all the rights and duties applicable to a pedestrian under the same circumstances.
Drivers must yield to a pedestrian or a bicyclist who is legally in a crosswalk. Please see this post:
