Jaywalking is a common and often commonsense way to walk. Feel free to add your personal experiences.

  • How often do you cross in the middle of a block or against the light? 
  • How does inadequate infrastructure, such as lack of sidewalks or too few crosswalks, make jaywalking necessary in your neighborhood?
  • Share an experience of being ticketed or harassed by the police while jaywalking.
