"They must repair the city's pothole filled roads to ensure safe crossing points for pedestrians.
"I do not think it is a reasonable idea in the city considering the traffic jams which occur during peak hour. It means I will have to wait for hours before I cross; motorists do not pave way for pedestrians during peak periods."
Others felt TSCZ should focus more on protecting rather than punishing pedestrians.
Clara Mangeya said: "The Traffic Safety Council should first ensure that traffic lights are functional and all zebra crossings clearly marked before they move to punish pedestrians."
However, others said the regulations would restore sanity in urban centres and reduce road traffic accidents.
"There should be strict regulations on pedestrians because we experience many road accidents and deaths because of pedestrians crossing in the wrong places," said Blessing Moyo, a commuter omnibus driver.
Some said more emphasis should be put on restoring sanity at ranks and termini where kombi drivers, touts and marshals did as they pleased.
The new Highway Code will encompass all road users unlike in the past when it emphasised rules for motorists and cyclists.
The current Highway Code was formulated in 1972, and TSCZ officials said it was outdated.
