Crossover rules of the road 

Pedestrian crossovers are often located mid-block with signs on both sides of the road and may include flashing lights and an overhead sign. If you're driving, be prepared to stop for pedestrians waiting to cross. If you're crossing, activate the flashing lights if available, make it clear that you want to cross and make sure drivers see you before stepping out onto the road.
