- Failing to yield the right of way to a pedestrian crossing within a marked crosswalk.
- Stopping within a crosswalk, forcing the pedestrian to enter the roadway in order to get around a vehicle.
- Passing another vehicle stopped at a crosswalk.
- Speeding, driving under the influence, running a red light or stop sign, distracted driving, and other general negligent behaviors.
