Irish law requires pedestrians to exercise care when crossing the road, however the specific offense known as Jaywalking in countries including the US, Canada, China and Australia is not strictly enforced. While pedestrian crossings are common in Irish towns and cities, don’t be surprised to see people skip past you while you wait for the green light, or indeed if you see people simply crossing the road wherever they like. On the subject of crossing the road, remember too to look right for approaching traffic, as we drive on the left :0)
