Pedestrian defined.

 

      RELATES TO: KRS

304.39-050(1)

      STATUTORY AUTHORITY:

KRS 304.2-110, 304.39-300

      NECESSITY, FUNCTION,

AND CONFORMITY: Whereas, KRS 304.39-050 defines "pedestrian." Because

of the very nature of "pedestrian," the tremendous impact its exact

meaning has upon policy forms and rates, it is necessary to define

"pedestrian" with great specificity. The purpose of this

administrative regulation is to establish a specificity for rating and policy

form purposes.

 

      Section 1. The sentence,

"A pedestrian, as used herein, means any person who is not an operator or

user of a motor vehicle at the time his injury occurs," as used in KRS

304.39-050(1), is interpreted to mean that a pedestrian is a person who is not

actually operating, riding in or upon, entering, or alighting from a "kind

of motor vehicle," as defined by insurance office administrative

regulation at the time his injury actually occurs. (1 Ky.R. 879; eff. 5-14-75;

TAm eff. 8-9-2007.)
