Zebra Crossings

Be prepared to give way to pedestrians wishing to cross from either side of the road. You must give way to pedestrians who are on the crossing. Look for any signs that a pedestrian might be about to cross and prepare to give way. Pedestrians may turn and step onto the crossing with little or no warning.

You must wait until all pedestrians have left the crossing before continuing.

For zebra crossings, the presence of an island divides the crossing into two separate crossings. This means you do not have to wait for a pedestrian who is on the other side of the island. However, if they are walking towards your side of the road, you should anticipate that they intend to continue walking in front of you.
