Pedestrian Crossovers (PXO)
A pedestrian crossover (PXO) is a designated crossing area that allows pedestrians to safely cross the road where vehicles must yield to the pedestrian. PXOs are identified by specific pavement markings and crossing signs.
Pedestrians have the right of way at PXOs; drivers and cyclists must stop behind the yield line (triangles that look like “sharks’ teeth”) and wait until the pedestrian completely finishes crossing the road before proceeding. All road users must obey pedestrian crossover rules; laws are in effect around- the- clock.
It is important that drivers, cyclists and pedestrians each know their role when approaching a PXO.
To learn more about the responsibilities of drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists, as well as fine and penalties, visit the City of London website or Ontario Ministry of Transportation.
