Jaywaliking seems like the biggest bullshit law ever made up. Seriously take this example:
My friends drop me off opposite my house 3am in the morning after a long night out partying. My house is situated in a 2km long street and the only intersections are 1km away. The street is deserted at 3am in the morning. What do I do:
A) Jaywalk across the road after Looking left, then right, then left again.
B) Walk 1km down the road to the intersection cross to the other side and walk another 1km back to my house.
C) Ring the door bell of my neighbour and get him to drive me home (which is directly across the road).
D) Call my mate for him to come back and deposit me in front of my house.
Say I go with A. Police swoop out of no where and demand my ID etc on account I was Jaywalking.
So you can see my frustration with an ambiguous Law like Jaywalking. If the police did it cause I Jaywalked in front of on coming traffic in a semi built up area with cars going a fast speeds where I could potentially cause an accident I totally get it.
