Oh, and zebra crossings: pedestrians get right of way (I know your diagram is of a light controlled crossing). So pedestrians can legitimately walk along the pavement, turn through 90 degrees, and straight out into the road.

Car drivers should therefore be prepared for such actions, by slowing down and being ready to stop. They shouldn't be whizzing along so blithely that the pedestrians actually have to stop and wait for a break in the traffic (although, obviously, that's not a bad idea, since pedestrain legitimacy isn't going to win out against motorist speeding-lump-of-metal).
