Driving automobiles

Should jaywalking be legalized??

When you cross at an intersection you are at the mercy of every midget
soccer mom or DUI illegal in a 6000 pound SUV who decides to kneecap
you just for the hell of it.  They know nothing will be done to them
even if they cripple you for life or kill you.  It’s really bad when
there is snow or ice on the road and and a driver can easily
underestimate the stopping distance.

But when you jaywalk, then YOU decide when it’s safe to cross. That’s
how it should be.

    How about you stick to the crosswalk but wait for a green light or an
    opening in traffic?

    Naah, that would make too much sense.  In fact I ENCOURAGE you to
    jaywalk at every possible opportunity.  Given your demonstrated superior
    judgement in practically all matters it is only a matter of (not much)
    time before natural selection works its magic.

    Yes. The sooner that the vile infidel, "Speeders & Drunk Drivers Are

    Here’s a recommendation…why don’t YOU try the experiment.  Hopefully

    That’s how it is where I live. If you walk out in front of a car and the
    car’s not speeding and the driver tried to stop, you are at fault, not
    the driver.

    I thought you were claiming they, the illegals, the SUV drivers, the
    DUIers, the midgets with long fixtures affixed to their feet, the soccer
    moms, were doing it on purpose. Now you say they just misjudged their
    stopping distance. Isn’t that reason to let them off?

    Sometimes it’s deliberate and sometimes it isn’t.  Doesn’t matter.  Their
    reckless driving killed someone and they should do decades of time, but
    they never do. Stop defending murderers, you coddler.

    It’s not an issue of inept drivers; it’s an issue of inept civil
    engineers. You know, just like how Mary Jo’s death was the result of
    the ineptitude of the people who built the bridge at Chappaquidick?

    LMAO. You’re so stupid.

    What is "jaywalking"? Is it going from one street corner to another
    *diagonally* or is it just crossing a street where there isn’t a zebra
    crossing painted on it? Because it could be safer, depending on
    circumstances, if you distance yourself from an intersection since there
    are fewer possible directions for cars to be coming at you.

       Those lights – not just the "cross" light but the red-yellow-green
       gizmos too – have become mere "suggestions". You pretty much NEVER
       know when someone is gonna do something stupid at an intersection.
       Truthfully, it IS better to jaywalk … the middle of the block
       is less congested and the traffic is definitely in motion rather
       than theoretically suspended.

    The Free Right turn is always on, however, so you can still get
    flattened. The cross sign usually is illuminated as "go ahead, I dare
    you" when the cars are free to go straight across or right.

    How is that gonna stop some drunk from slamming into you while you cross
    the street in the designated walkway?. Do you understand what this thread

    The right-turn-on-red is in many ways a bad thing.  It encourages drivers
    to inch forward and block the walkway and then make a quick turn while
    looking for cars without looking for the peds. As you say, red is now just
    a suggestion to stop.
