What is the proper use of the word "within"?

Asked by ldevlin (19 points ) 1 month ago

I recently saw a commercially produced sign at a crosswalk that stated “you must yield to individuals (picture of walking person) “within” the crosswalk”. Why not just “in” the crosswalk? I thought within meant contained or enclosed! Just curious.
