I don't think I've heard of this one. And I didn't know that cities could make by-laws like that.

I didn't think it was a bylaw, but part of the HTA...unless there is another one which applies to intersections that I don't know about (the section of the HTA applies only to PXOs, not crosswalks--welcome to the insanity that is the Ontario HTA).

I thought maybe it was the one about PXOs.

Only level 2 crossovers, not all crosswalks or intersections. In Alberta, it's stop for pedestrians while on the road, regardless of place of crossing.

I recall crossing mid block in Calgary once and the cars were stopped before even setting foot on the road.

You are all correct! I thought it was a bylaw for all intersections, but it is HTA for level 2 crossovers. Thank you for helping me realize that.

I still don't have much faith that bylaw enforcement is effective but I will need better examples of disillusionment from now on.
