The pedestrians must stop when a traffic signal indicates for them to do so. They should use sidewalks whenever they are available. Florida law says that there may be exceptions, so there can be some situations that still require a pedestrian to walk in the road, like in an emergency or when the sidewalk is inaccessible because of construction. A driver needs to stop for pedestrians who are in a crosswalk with a walk signal.
