|The City of Apple Valley and the Police Department wish to remind
motorists and pedestrians alike of Minnesota State Statute 169.021
- Motorists must stop and yield to pedestrians within the
crosswalk, and remain stopped until pedestrians have passed through the
motorists’ traffic lane. Pedestrians are not allowed to suddenly leave a
curb or other place of safety and walk or run into the path of a
vehicle that is so close that it is impossible for the driver to yield.
- Pedestrians crossing the roadway at any point other than a
marked crosswalk, or an intersection without a crosswalk, must yield to
Pedestrian safety is everyone’s responsibility. Remember, stop for the feet.
