yes in your state:
https://www.azleg.gov/ars/28/00792.htm
28-792. Right-of-way at crosswalk
A. Except as provided in section 28-793, subsection B, if traffic
control signals are not in place or are not in operation, the driver
of a vehicle shall yield the right-of-way, slowing down or stopping
if need be in order to yield, to a pedestrian crossing the roadway
within a crosswalk when the pedestrian is on the half of the roadway
on which the vehicle is traveling or when the pedestrian is
approaching so closely from the opposite half of the roadway as to
be in danger. A pedestrian shall not suddenly leave any curb or other
place of safety and walk or run into the path of a vehicle that is so
close that it is impossible for the driver to yield.


What part of "traffic control signals" don't you understand?

what part of not hitting someone is not clear?

if there are traffic lights, drivers need to obey those too.

but go ahead, don't yield to pedestrians and see how well that works
out for you.

Yes, and they didn't stop at the end of that day.

semi-OT:
The polarized plug you're holding is turned wrong, so you need to
turn it around for it to fit. As some say "it only takes half a second".

Suppose you have 20 things to plug in today. About half will need to
be turned around. That's 5 seconds a day, 30 minutes per year. Assuming
60 plugging-in years of life, you've spent over 30 hours turning plugs
around.

30 hours is a lot longer than half a second.

The driver was obeying his green light and proceeding through the
intersection, The girl was DISOBEYING her red light and stepped onto the
street when the car was only a few feet away. How was he supposed to
stop in about 5 feet?
Do you think he has magic brakes with Instant stop? Or are you too
stubborn to understand ?

people did that before phones, often while drunk, but not always.


Playing expensive "free" cellphone games is a form of impairment, like

just because she should not have stepped onto the street does not
exempt the driver from not hitting her or anything else.

he wasn't paying attention. simple as that.

anyone that is in a position where they must 'slam on the brakes' to
avoid hitting someone or something is not paying attention and also
driving too fast for conditions.

drivers do stupid ****. that's why autonomous vehicles can't happen
fast enough.

Not really.


And this, because of the efforts of many motorists. Many

There are thousands of people using phones normally, perfectly aware of
their surroundings. Obviously, we only notice the exceptions.


How do you know?

Many of the exceptions are when attention is required due to
conditions in the surroundings and the phone user is not up to. IOW,
this is a test of awareness that many fail.

I think that's what happened when I had a dual boot (Win and Linux on
