Jaywalkers by Freshman15 Jaywalkers by Freshman15
The jaywalking situation where I live is ridiculous. Los Angeles city blocks aren't that long for the most part, and where they are, they have crosswalks in the middle of them, JUST so people don't have to walk to an intersection. And people still dart out into the middle of the street.

It makes me want to start nudging pedestrians. Or at least lay on the horn like an asshole.

That is, the 12th picture on the linked page. I forgot it hides links.

Looks like someone had that idea like 85 Years earlier.

Lol. OKay.

Jay walking in LA- Not Cool
JayWalking in Manhattan - Cool when you're only trying to avoid being hit by taxis.

The line 'You may now cross unmolested' is probably the funniest damn thing I've heard in resent years.

You're sweet, that jaywalkers' arse would eventually get run over where I live.

Come to think of it, you can get run over if you're IN the crosswalk too long! D:

I spent some years driving, but particularly after giving up the car and being a full time cyclist, pedestrian, transit user, former in-line skater to get everywhere person, I find the attitude of drivers to be the problem more than anything. Even in marked cross walks people plow through sometimes and at lit intersections swing right turns without stopping to check if is clear (a legal obligation). This is why in New York where there are a lot more walkers there are no right on reds and speaking of New York, block lengths there make ours seem simply Goliath by comparison, I think one of the reasons so many cross mid block here. Sometimes even just walking on the sidewalk can be hazardous as people fly out of parking garages or lots across drive ways without checking both directions. Despite the law change, cell phone talking while driving is still rampant and texting and driving has been shown to impair reaction times worse than drinking in some cases.

My biggest gripe is when the value of a life becomes worth less than a few seconds of time. This is not to say people who jaw walk with concern are not a problem, but I think everyone, drivers, cyclists, pedestrians need to respect each other. Though sometimes when drivers come an inch from clipping me with their side view mirror while going 15 mph over the speed limit sipping latte my seldom seen temper can flare up.
