California Vehicle Code Section 21950 - Right-of-Way at Crosswalks

(a) The driver of a vehicle shall yield the right-of-way to
    a pedestrian crossing the roadway within any marked crosswalk or
    within any unmarked crosswalk at an intersection, except as otherwise
    provided in this chapter.

(b) This section does not relieve a pedestrian from the duty of
    using due care for his or her safety.  No pedestrian may suddenly
    leave a curb or other place of safety and walk or run into the path
    of a vehicle that is so close as to constitute an immediate hazard.
    No pedestrian may unnecessarily stop or delay traffic while in a
    marked or unmarked crosswalk.

(c) The driver of a vehicle approaching a pedestrian within any
    marked or unmarked crosswalk shall exercise all due care and shall
    reduce the speed of the vehicle or take any other action relating to
    the operation of the vehicle as necessary to safeguard the safety of
    the pedestrian.

(d) Subdivision (b) does not relieve a driver of a vehicle from
    the duty of exercising due care for the safety of any pedestrian
    within any marked crosswalk or within any unmarked crosswalk at an
    intersection.
