    On a crosswalk without a traffic signal, who has the right of way - Pedestrian or Vehicle?

    I don't know about the laws in the 'good ole USA' but here in Australia the pedestrian has the right of way.   If you don't believe me, find out what happens if you happen to knock down and injure or kill a pedestrian.   You  can bet it won't be the pedestrian who gets charged by the police - not at a pedestrian crossing!

    Pedestrians always have the right of way, especially if there is a crosswalk.

    It depends on where you are.  If you're in the USA those little white lines mean the pedestrian has the right of way.  However, applying that logic in México could result in the death of the pedestrian.  It just depends on the local laws.

    The vehicle.. just run them over! No, just kidding: obviously, the pedestrian has the right of way. If you hit a pedestrian with your car you will quickly realize they have the right of way whether they're being idiots or not. If you jump in front of traffic, you have the right to continue without cars running you over.

    The general law of the road is that anything that can be harmed by a vehicle has the right of way, of course including animals.
