Crossing the busy streets of Hollywood, California can be a dangerous endeavor.

CALIFORNIA VEHICLE CODE PROTECTS PEDESTRIANS IN HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA

The California vehicle code is designed to protect Hollywood pedestrians, in part, because when a pedestrian is struck by a car, truck, SUV, bus, motorcycle, or other vehicle in Hollywood, California, the pedestrian often suffers major injuries.  Under California Vehicle Code Section 21951, “[w]henever any vehicle has stopped at a marked crosswalk or at any unmarked crosswalk at an intersection to permit a pedestrian to cross the roadway the driver of any other vehicle approaching from the rear shall not overtake and pass the stopped vehicle.”  This vehicle code section is aimed at causing traffic in Hollywood, California to come to a complete stop when pedestrians are in the street.  Unfortunately, drivers do not always yield to pedestrians in Hollywood, California—and there can be disastrous results.
