What are the rules of the Road concerning Pedestrians?
Florida traffic regulations concerning pedestrians are contained at Florida Statutes 316.130. Among other things, the law provides that a pedestrian shall obey the instructions of any official traffic control device specifically applicable to the pedestrian and that where sidewalks are provided, a pedestrian should not walk on the road. When there is no sidewalk, any pedestrian walking along the road should walk only on the shoulder on the left side of the road facing traffic.
