At last week’s Nashville City Council meeting, Mayor Raymond Kolweier told the council of a complaint from someone who had trouble going across a street in town at a crosswalk. Nashville Police Chief Brian Fletcher has released a statement on just what the laws say for pedestrians and motorists when approaching crosswalks in Nashville. Basically, a motorist has the right-of-way, unless a pedestrian is already out in the crosswalk, but otherwise the pedestrian should watch out for vehicles. Fletcher goes on to add what motorists should do, especially in a community like Nashville, such as stop and let the pedestrian cross, when they see them waiting at a crosswalk. The Chief says some communities have a light at crosswalks and the motorist must obey that light, but Nashville does not have such a signal.
