GLENDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -- Stanley Roberts looks at a crosswalk in Glendale where drivers and pedestrians are ignoring the rules of the road.

Drivers are ignoring the High-Intensity Activated Crosswalk or HAWK lighting system, and pedestrians are ignoring the crosswalk which makes for a dangerous combination.

[WATCH: Drivers, pedestrians 'Caught Misbehaving' by ignoring HAWK]

A HAWK pedestrian beacon that resembles a traffic signal light and is pedestrian-activated, is installed at 65th and Glendale avenues.

Traffic stops only when the push-button is activated by someone waiting to cross the roadway. When a pedestrian pushes the button, drivers will get a flashing yellow light, then a solid yellow light followed by a solid red light that turns into a flashing red light.

When the light is solid red, drivers are required to stop. When the light is flashing red, drivers should treat that as a stop sign by stopping and looking. If it is safe to proceed, drivers can go.

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.
