The Virginia Department of Transportation ensures proper signage and markings for all users of the road.  The ones shown below focus on pedestrians.  Pedestrians are the most vulnerable road users and drivers must pay special attention when navigating intersections and areas where pedestrians are frequently found (schools, residential areas, commercial shopping areas).

         

         

Be attentive in these locations and always expect the unexpected.  Find additional information on VDOT’s website.  And remember, Virginia law requires you to yield to pedestrians at a crosswalk in a speed limit zone that is marked 35 MPH or less.

Happy driving!  Drive Safely!
