    One mistake and pow, you are out $100. I guess they just can’t write warning tickets any more. You’ve got to wonder just how perfect the cop was that wrote you that ticket, and the prosecutor. Nobodies perfect and we just shouldn’t be fined for every little thing we might do wrong. A warning would have sufficed just fine. You wouldn’t have done it any more and the court would have been able to take care of more important matters and you would still have your $100.

    I am sorry about your jay walking episode and thanks for posting about it because we had no idea that it was an offense. We are going to be mighty careful in future as it would really distress me to have to fork out so much cash. ( All I would be able to think about is how many plants I could have bought) I agree with Bob- surely everyone deserves a warning one time.

    It might be annoying to get a ticket for jay walking but if you do the crime, pay the fine, suck it up and stop whining! In the past 2-3 years there has been an increase in traffic fatalities because people don’t want to wait for the light to turn green or use a crosswalk. Jay walking / rolling the dice in an attempt to get somewhere faster might not be worth it. The jay walking issue goes hand-in-hand with distracted drivers who are not using hands-free devices to talk on cell phones or are otherwise distracted. Think about it the next time you jay walk in the middle of the street because your’re in a hurry. Next time, you could still be in hurry – – to the hospital to have your life saved or on the way to the morgue and that would be a real drag. You won’t “get it” until you or a loved one get hit while jay walking.

    Learn to embrace using marked crosswalks and stop jay walking (it could save your life).
