Quoting from this document:

'Safety Effects of Marked Versus Unmarked Crossings at Uncontrolled

marked crosswalks should not be regarded as a magic cure for
pedestrian safety problems.'

An uncontrolled crossing just means a crossing without traffic lights,
thus, it can also be an unmarked crossing.
