Pedestrian Signals

Walking sign

Many street crossings have pedestrian signals that show the words WALK and DON'T WALK or show a WALKING PERSON in white and a RAISED HAND in orange. Pedestrian signals direct pedestrians while crossing the street. The WALK or WALKING PERSON appears when it is legal to start crossing.

Stop walking light

When the DON'T WALK or RAISED HAND appears, you may not start across the street. The flashing signal means you should not begin to cross because you may not have enough time to make it to the other side before vehicles start moving across your path. If the flashing starts after you have already started to cross, you may finish crossing the street.

Push button to cross street

At many traffic signals, you need to push the pedestrian push button to receive the WALK or WALKING PERSON signal. At a crossing where there are no pedestrian signals, pedestrians must obey the red, yellow, or green signal lights.
