What do the Walk / Don't Walk signals mean?
When the Walk indication is illuminated, the pedestrian may start walking across the intersection crosswalk. The pedestrian should always still check for potential conflicts with turning vehicles because not all drivers are necessarily watching out for them.

When the Don't Walk indication is flashing, it is not safe for the pedestrian to start crossing the intersection. A pedestrian who is already in the crosswalk when the indication starts to flash will have enough time to reach the other side if traveling at a normal walking speed of 3.5 feet per second.
