Narrator: Giving way to pedestrians when turning.

Graphic: Giving way to pedestrians when turning

[A man waits to cross a road that forms a T intersection with another road on his right. As he starts to cross, a car approaches the man from behind. The car has its indicator on to turn left into the road where the man is crossing.]

Narrator: If you are turning left or right at an intersection, you must give way to any pedestrian crossing the road that you are about to enter.

[The car stops and waits for the man to cross before it turns left and enters the road.]

Narrator: This rule applies to intersections both with and without traffic lights, however, it doesn't apply at roundabouts.
