New Jersey Crosswalk rule

 New Jersey 39:4-36. a. The driver of a vehicle shall yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian crossing the roadway within a marked crosswalk or within any unmarked crosswalk at an intersection, except at crosswalks when the movement of traffic is being regulated by police officers or traffic control signals, or where otherwise prohibited by municipal, county, or State regulation, and except where a pedestrian tunnel or overhead pedestrian crossing has been provided, but no pedestrian shall suddenly leave a curb or other place of safety and walk or run into the path of a vehicle which is so close that it is impossible for the driver to yield. Nothing contained herein shall relieve a pedestrian from using due care for his safety.

Please post this in every BMG building!! I'm tired of having these guys just walk into the street expecting everyone to stop! They don't even look before crossing! Its as if Chief of Police gave them the right of way!

I am upset that when I was crossing Hillside Ave. in Westgate with three little kids at the crosswalk, no one slowed down. I didn't cross just a car was coming, I waited until there were no cars near the crosswalk, and then when I was in the middle cars kept coming and driving right by.
