Pedestrians always have priority in traffic, but unfortunately only few drivers follow this rule.
Many people do not stop at pedestrian crossings, even though they spot pedestrians on the other side who want to cross the road.
Canada has such problems too, so a speacial campaign was held in Quebec to alert drivers about that problem there. The pedestrian crossing was modified so that the lines on the crosswalk were raised, preventing drivers from driving on.
The video, posted online by SAAQ, has garnered over 4.5 million views in just a month, giving many drivers around the world a fair think about not stopping at crosswalks.
Should all pedestrian crossings be made the way the Canadians made the video? Take a look at the drivers’ responses as the lines at the pedestrian crossing rose in front of them!
