HC Deb 09 February 1938 vol 331 c1080W
Sir W. Brass

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will consider removing the studs from all pedestrian crossings where the traffic is light-controlled, in order to emphasise the fact that pedestrians have no extra rights at these crossings and that their duty is to watch the lights in the same way as the drivers of vehicles must do?

Mr. Burgin

Marked crossings at light-controlled junctions indicate the proper place for pedestrians to cross, to the advantage of both pedestrians and drivers. Pedestrians using such crossings who have begun to cross the road while the appropriate line of traffic is held up have precedence over traffic released by the signals.
