You must stop your vehicle when directed to do so by a school crossing guard controlling a crosswalk.
You may not pass any vehicle that is stopped at an intersection to permit pedestrians to cross.
As a pedestrian, you must not attempt to cross at an intersection unless you have given motorists a chance to stop.
