So the car has the right to turn into a road he currently doesn't occupy over the pedestrians right to step onto the same road?
Yes, assuming the pedestrian is still on the pavement, and all other things are equal - say no crossings.
That basically gives the car a priority over this new piece of road that neither have currently laid claim too, meaning the cars have a greater right of way.
Cars have greater priority than pedestrians, when pedestrians are not actually crossing, and not on some kind of crossing.
Unless of course the pedestrian was never on the pavement and was infact walking down the road next to the pavement. But that would just put him in the same position as a car traveling up the road which would also have the right of way here. I'm strugling to see here how a pedestrian has anymore rights of way than a car, I just know they do.
When a pedestrian is crossing the road, they have priority.
When they're not crossing the road, and are on the pavement, vehicles have priority.
All other things being equal, and we're not talking about any kind of pedestrian crossing.
If a car is at a junction pulling out onto a road from a side road and a pedestrian is waiting on the pavement to cross that side road who has right of way here? Surely the car must give way as he is at a give way line?
The car has priority, until such time as the pedestrian is already crossing.
The give way lines are to show priority to traffic using
the road the car is about to join.
