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”.
