70.03 Pedestrians--Crossing At Other Than Crosswalks There was in force in the State of Illinois at the time of the occurrence in question a certain statute which provided that: [Quote or paraphrase applicable part of statute or ordinance as construed by the courts (see, e.g., 625 ILCS 5/11-1001 to 11-1010 (1994). For example: Every pedestrian crossing a roadway at any point other than within a marked crosswalk or within an unmarked crosswalk at an intersection shall yield the rightof-way to all vehicles upon the roadway. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this section every driver of a vehicle shall exercise due care to avoid colliding with any pedestrian upon any roadway and shall give warning by sounding the horn when necessary and shall exercise proper precaution upon observing any child or any obviously confused or incapacitated person upon a roadway.] If you decide that [a party] [the parties] violated the [statute] [ordinance] on the occasion in question, then you may consider that fact together with all the other facts and circumstances in evidence in determining whether and to what extent, if any, [a party] [the parties] [was] [were] negligent before and at the time of the occurrence.
