A pedestrian is a person who is walking, especially in an area where vehicles go. This term is often used in the context of road safety, as pedestrians need to be considered and protected in traffic regulations.
going on foot; performed on foot; as, a pedestrian journey
a walker; one who journeys on foot; a foot traveler; specif., a professional walker or runner
A pedestrian is a person traveling on foot, whether walking or running. In some communities, those traveling using tiny wheels such as roller skates, skateboards, and scooters, as well as wheelchair users are also included as pedestrians. In modern times, the term mostly refers to someone walking on a road or sidewalk, but this was not the case historically.
