(a) When crossing highways or streets, pedestrians shall not carelessly or maliciously interfere with the orderly passage of vehicles. They shall cross whenever possible only at intersections, but where intersections of streets contain no marked crosswalks pedestrians shall not be guilty of negligence as a matter of law for failure to cross at said intersection. They shall cross only at right angles.
(b) Pedestrians may cross an intersection diagonally when all traffic entering the intersection has been halted by lights, semaphores or signals by a peace or police officer. (Code 1959, § 20-251)
