When and where do drivers have to yield to pedestrians?

When and where do drivers have to yield to pedestrians? Officer Marcus Trujillo explains who's responsible.

"We've already covered all of the crosswalks and the intersections. And the thing to remember is that driving is not a right. Driving is a privilege. That's why when someone gets their license suspended, the legal terminology is the privileges have been suspended. We have to remember that it is a privilege. Along with privileges come a greater responsibility. As the operator of that motor vehicle, you bear a greater responsibility to keep an eye out for a pedestrian who may not see you. So you have a greater responsibility to try to avoid any type of accidents with pedestrians."
