HC Deb 09 December 1935 vol 307 c559
65. Sir G. FOX

asked the Home Secretary how many pedestrians have been prosecuted for the improper use of pedestrian crossing-places since their introduction in the Metropolitan area?


The only offence involving improper use of these crossings for which a pedestrian can be prosecuted is the offence of remaining longer on a crossing than is necessary for the purpose of passing from one side of the road to the other with reasonable dispatch. I understand that proceedings for this offence have only been taken in one case.
