Police Hand Out 328 Tickets To Pedestrians Thursday

The parent anology is erronious. Parents can ground or scold their children and it is actually significant to the child. We arrogant citizenry would not even begin to pay attention to scolding from law enforcement.

Police, therefore, must use the tools at their disposal - fines. For those so bothered by the idea of monetary penalty for violating rules of the road for pedestrians and cyclists, those people need only be respectful of the rules. By doing so they would easily avoid said fines, and they would not be upsetting traffic.

Of course, if a person would rather get run over by a car because they are jaywalking, more power to 'em. According to this article, 10 out of 13 pedestrians who got struck by cars were at fault.

It really is that simple.
