RCW 46.61.235 CROSSWALKS

The operator of an approaching vehicle shall stop and remain stopped to allow a pedestrian or bicycle to cross the roadway within an unmarked or marked crosswalk when the pedestrian or bicycle is upon or within one lane of the half of the roadway upon which the vehicle is traveling or onto which it is turning. This means all traffic lanes carrying traffic in one direction of travel and includes the entire width of a one-way roadway.

No pedestrian or bicycle shall walk, run or otherwise move into the path of a vehicle which is so close that it is impossible for the driver to stop.

Whenever a vehicle is stopped to allow a pedestrian or bicyclist to cross the street, another vehicle approaching from the rear shall not pass the stopped vehicle.
