Pedestrians and Crosswalks

Pedestrians have the right-of-way at all intersections and crosswalks in Calgary unless the intersection is controlled by a traffic signal or traffic control device, or if a police officer indicates otherwise. No-stopping signage may be in place at certain crosswalk locations to maintain safety and pedestrian visibility.

Before crossing, pedestrians should:

  • signal their intention to cross and ensure they are visible to traffic,
  • ensure traffic has stopped, and
  • ensure that they will not step in front of a vehicle that cannot stop.

Pedestrians can legally cross streets at the following locations:

Unmarked crosswalks exist at every intersection where there is a sidewalk, unless signs indicate that the crosswalk is closed. They extend from the corner of one sidewalk, across the roadway, to the corner of the opposite sidewalk.

Marked crosswalks have signs and painted white lines that extend from the corner of one sidewalk, to the corner of the opposite sidewalk. Marked crosswalks may also be located mid-block (between intersections).

Marked crosswalks with pedestrian-activated lights

  • Overhead Flashers use overhead flashing yellow lights with advance-warning signs at marked crosswalks.
  • Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFBs) use side-mounted rectangular flashing yellow lights with advance-warning signs at marked crosswalks.

Marked crosswalks at intersections controlled by traffic signals Intersections controlled by traffic signals have WALK and DON’T WALK signals in addition to a marked crosswalk. Pedestrian scramble intersections stop traffic in all directions to allow pedestrians to cross in any direction.

walk light Walk symbol indicates it's safe to begin crossing the street.
Don't walk light

Flashing don’t walk symbol indicates it's not safe to begin crossing the street. If you started crossing before the signal began to flash, you have enough time to cross the street.

Solid don't walk symbol indicates that you shouldn’t be in the crosswalk.​

Accessible Pedestrian Signals indicate when and in which direction it is safe to cross.
