News to me. Especially that it happens in Toronto, as someone here claims. Yes, people will stop out of good will (or fear of splattering the pedestrian's guts all over the pavement, perhaps), but I don't think most drivers are aware of a law... Does Ontario even have such a law? I know there is no jaywalking penalty here; i.e., as a pedestrian, you can cross anywhere you like, but you must not interfere with traffic that has ROW.
