According to BC MVA section 119, a pedestrian is a person afoot, or an invalid or child in a wheelchair or carriage. The law is based on the vulnerability of all ‘non-drivers’ . However, the law is also clear that pedestrians are also obliged to watch out for themselves. This is especially so where they are “jaywalking”.

ICBC is responsible for payment of claims caused by the negligent actions of an identifiable motorist. Also, The Canadian Criminal Code states that a person who is involved in a car accident with another person, and tries to escape liability by failing to stop and give a correct name and address, commits a serious offence.
