PEDESTRIAN SAFETY LAWS
What’s the best way to use a pedestrian traffic signal?

A pedestrian has the right of way when the pedestrian signal shows a steady “Walk” sign or person symbol.

--Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee
Who has the right of way when a car is pulling into or out of traffic across a sidewalk?

Pedestrians do. The driver of a vehicle emerging from or entering an alleyway, building, private road or driveway must yield the right of way to any pedestrian approaching on any sidewalk or road shoulder.

What should a pedestrian do if there isn’t a marked crosswalk?

If there are no crosswalks, the safest place for pedestrians to cross the road is at an intersection. Motorists have the right of way at all locations other than intersections and marked crosswalks.

BICYCLE SAFETY LAWS
Bicyclists must obey all traffic signals, signs and 
pavement markings.

Bicyclists who violate the law are  subject to traffic tickets. Parents can be held responsiblefor violations by their minor children.

--NY State Bicycle Safety Laws
Bicyclists are required to follow the same laws and rules of the road as motorists. 

This includes riding on the right side of the road as well as obeying traffic signs and signals. 

If there is a usable bicycle lane, the bicyclist must use it.

If there is no lane or it is unusable due to parked cars or other hazards, the bicyclist may ride either on the right shoulder, or near the right edge or curb of the roadway. A bicyclist may move further left to turn left but the bicyclist must avoid undue interference with other traffic.
