13. Pedestrians shall move along sidewalks or footpaths, and in their absence – along roadsides, as well as in accordance with the requirements of paragraphs 1 and 4 of section 17 of the Rules.

Pedestrians carrying or transporting bulky items, as well as persons moving in wheelchairs without an engine, shall move along the edge of the carriageway (on roads with a traffic line – along the outer edge of the carriageway) if their movement along sidewalks or roadsides creates obstacles for other pedestrians.

In the absence of sidewalks, footpaths or roadsides, as well as in case of impossibility to move along them, pedestrians shall move along the cycle path or walk in one line along the edge of the carriageway (on roads with a traffic line – along the outer edge of the carriageway).

Outside settlements, when moving along the carriageway, pedestrians shall move towards the movement of vehicles.

Persons moving in wheelchairs without an engine, driving a motorcycle, moped, or bicycle along the edge of the carriageway, shall follow the right side of the road in the direction of the vehicles.


14. The movement of organized pedestrian columns along the carriageway shall be carried out in the direction of the movement of vehicles on the right side of no more than four people in a row. In front and behind the column on the left side there shall be escorts with red flags, and in the dark and conditions of insufficient visibility – with lights on: in front – of white colour, behind – of red colour.


15. Pedestrians shall cross the carriageway at pedestrian crossings, including underground and elevated ones, and if they are absent within sight, at intersections along the line of sidewalks or roadsides.

If there is no crossing or intersection in the visibility zone, it shall be permitted to cross the road at a right angle to the edge of the carriageway where it is visible in both directions. It shall be prohibited to cross the carriageway outside the pedestrian crossing if there is a traffic line in the settlement, as well as in places where pedestrian or road barriers are installed.


16. In places where traffic is regulated, pedestrians shall be guided by the signals of a traffic warden or a pedestrian traffic light, and in their absence, a transport traffic light.


17. At unregulated pedestrian crossings, pedestrians shall enter the carriageway after they estimate the distance to approaching vehicles, and their speed and make sure that the crossing will be safe for them. When crossing the carriageway outside the pedestrian crossing, pedestrians shall not interfere with the movement of vehicles and shall not leave because of a standing vehicle or another obstacle that limits visibility without making sure that there are no approaching vehicles.

The concepts of regulated and unregulated pedestrian crossings shall be similar to the concepts of regulated and unregulated intersections established in paragraph 4 of section 13 of the Rules.


18. Having entered the carriageway, pedestrians shall not linger and do not stop, if this is not related to ensuring traffic safety. Pedestrians who did not have time to complete the transition shall stop on the line separating the traffic flows of opposite directions. It shall be permitted to continue the transition only after making sure that the further movement is safe and taking into account the traffic lights (traffic warden).


19. When approaching vehicles with a blue flashing beacon and a special sound signal turned on, pedestrians shall not cross the carriageway, but those on it shall give way to these vehicles and clear the carriageway.


20. Waiting for a route vehicle and a taxi shall be carried out on landing sites raised concerning the carriageway, and in their absence – on the sidewalk or roadside. At stopping points that are not equipped with elevated landing areas, it shall be permitted to enter the carriageway of the road to board the vehicle only after it has stopped. After disembarking, pedestrians shall leave the carriageway without stopping.

When moving across the carriageway to the stopping point or from it, pedestrians shall be guided by the requirements of paragraphs 4-7 of this section.
