Should We Have jaywalking Laws In Britain?
I just referred to Jaywalking in response to an excellent article by Debbie which made me think of this topic for my first poll on Persona Papers – should the K have jaywalking laws similar to those of the USA? Jaywalking is when someone crosses a busy road or dual carriageway that has pedestrian crossing lights, pelicans, zebras, subways, etc, but chooses to cross without using those. In the US you can be fined for jaywalking even if no moving traffic is anywhere in sight. In the UK many people are injured or killed through pedestrians crossing busy roads in front of often fast moving traffic. Would you favour introducing Jaywalking laws in the UK? Yes or no?
