Pedestrians' right of way.

(1) The operator of a vehicle shall yield the right of way; slowing down or stopping, if need be, to yield to any pedestrian. No pedestrian shall suddenly leave a curb or other place of safety and walk or run into the path of a vehicle that is so close it is impossible for the driver to yield.
(2) Whenever any vehicle slows or stops to yield to pedestrian traffic, the operator of any other vehicle approaching from the rear shall not overtake and pass such a vehicle that has slowed or stopped to yield to pedestrian traffic.
(3) Every pedestrian crossing at any point other than a marked crosswalk or within an unmarked crosswalk at an intersection, shall yield the right of way to all vehicles.
(4) Pedestrians shall use sidewalks where provided.
