Persistent and heated is the debate about Ann Arbor's Crosswalk Law. Most recently, after the city council voted 6-4 to repeal the ordinance that was put into place in 2011, Mayor Heiftje used his veto power to null the vote. In its current state, the Ann Arbor City, requires vehicles to stop at a crosswalk if someone is "in the crosswalk" or "waiting at the curb." The 6-4 vote would have repealed the second part of this law, reverting it back to requiring vehicles only to stop if someone is in the crosswalk. The city council can override Mayor Heiftje's veto with 8 votes but it is unlikely that this will happen; four city council members strongly agree with Mayor Heiftje.
