Crosswalk is the North American word for pedestrian crossing. Not all crosswalks here have lights, but all have markings on the road, and usually a sign. If a driver sees someone standing at the crosswalk, lights or no lights they are suppose to stop, as the pedestrian has the right of way in this situation.
