Pedestrian Right-of-Way

In Pennsylvania pedestrians have the right-of-way at a crosswalk when a traffic signal light is not at the intersection. Drivers must yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian crossing the highway at an intersection. The pedestrian has the right-of-way whether or not the crosswalk is marked. Where there is no marked crosswalk, one is implied giving the pedestrian the right to cross the street in safety.

Typically, a mediator will meet jointly with the parties at the beginning of the session. After hearing each side's argument, the parties are separated into different rooms and the mediator shuttles back and forth discussing each party's position.
