Defer to Pedestrians
Transportation Article Section 21-801(h) Special Dangers as to Pedestrians or Other Traffic: You are instructed that it is the law of this State that at all times, consistent with the requirements of this section, the driver of a vehicle shall drive at an appropriate, reduced speed when any special danger exists as to pedestrians or other traffic or because of weather or highway conditions.
Note: The rule is mood music for the jurors in a pedestrian crash case. It helps give walkers the benefit of the doubt in these cases.
