Interesting. And how do you feel about the lethal injection for jay walkers?

Too expensive. Just make it legal to hit jaywalkers with your car, the problem will take care of itself.

Bad-da-dum


I would totally be down with that. I work in a heavy traffic area, and people just cross wherever the fuck they feel like. And every once in awhile, one of them gets hit, because of it. Sadly, it doesn't deter the rest...


Where I live, they made jaywalking a $100 fine. They nabbed a bunch of people when the law first passed a few years ago, but I haven't heard anything since then.


Ours is the exact opposite, I believe. In the last few years I think they passed a law that basically said that no matter where a person crosses the street, crosswalk or no, the car is supposed to yield. I think it's a bullshit law, frankly, and only encourages bad behavior from pedestrians. ("I have the right of wayyyyy!")

Crosswalks are there for a reason, obviously. I would love it if jaywalking were ever cracked down on here, but I doubt it will be, especially with that new law on the books.
