PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - A dangerous unmarked crosswalk in at 39th and Southern avenues in Laveen received an overhaul with newly installed crosswalk along with signage and flexible bollards.

So under normal circumstances, that would make the crossing safer.

[WATCH: Drivers caught misbehaving at Phoenix crosswalk]

However, a crosswalk is only as safe as the people who use it. Signs are instructing the pedestrians to use caution before stepping into traffic because drivers are still not yielding to pedestrians.

Some pedestrians say although it's safer than when there was no crosswalk, it still dangerous.

Caught Misbehaving with Stanley Roberts exposes individuals who brazenly defy the law or common courtesy, risking social and/or legal consequences. His reports air regularly on CBS 5 News at 10 p.m.

ARS 28-792 states " yield, to a pedestrian crossing the roadway ". It does not say to stop when the person is standing on the curb waiting to cross.

You sure about that? ARS 28-792 A. "...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 .."

As stated, 'crossing the roadway within a crosswalk", It does not say to stop so a person standing on the side of the road or at a corner or intersection who is waiting to cross, can cross. The person MUST first be in the crosswalk or in the roadway. Yes, I am sure about that.

Crossing against traffic signal negates that. and notice "within a crosswalk" not on the sidewalk thinking about maybe, possibly sometime in the future stepping into the crosswalk
