It's that time of year, tourists have come to Maine and seem to ignore most if not all crosswalks and decided to dart into traffic and cross the road, despite the fact that there are crosswalks in Bar Harbor and Ellsworth at most every block in the downtown areas. Heck, during the 4th of July Parade in Bar Harbor, I thought that a few pedestrians might have been run over as they darted across the street in front of parade floats!

Here's the law on crosswalks as it relates to drivers and pedestrians

3. Pedestrians on sidewalks.  An operator shall yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian on a sidewalk.[ 1993, c. 683, Pt. A, §2 (NEW); 1993, c. 683, Pt. B, §5 (AFF) .]
4. Pedestrians in marked crosswalks.  When traffic-control devices are not in operation, an operator must yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian who is crossing within a marked crosswalk or to a pedestrian who has shown visible intent to enter the marked crosswalk.
[ 2015, c. 164, §3 (AMD) .]
5. Pedestrian crossing.  A pedestrian must yield the right-of-way to a vehicle when crossing a way:
A. Other than within a marked crosswalk; or [1993, c. 683, Pt. A, §2 (NEW); 1993, c. 683, Pt. B, §5 (AFF).]
B. With an available pedestrian tunnel or overhead pedestrian crossing. [1993, c. 683, Pt. A, §2 (NEW); 1993, c. 683, Pt. B, §5 (AFF).]
[ 1993, c. 683, Pt. A, §2 (NEW); 1993, c. 683, Pt. B, §5 (AFF) .]
6. Pedestrian prohibitions.  A pedestrian may not:
A. Cross between adjacent intersections at which traffic-control devices operate, except in a marked crosswalk; [1993, c. 683, Pt. A, §2 (NEW); 1993, c. 683, Pt. B, §5 (AFF).]
B. Cross an intersection diagonally, unless authorized by official traffic-control devices; or [1993, c. 683, Pt. A, §2 (NEW); 1993, c. 683, Pt. B, §5 (AFF).]
C. Suddenly leave a curb or other place of safety and walk or run into the path of a vehicle that is so close that it is impossible for the operator to yield. [1993, c. 683, Pt. A, §2 (NEW); 1993, c. 683, Pt. B, §5 (AFF).]
