Shameful money grab

Posted on Thu, Dec 10, 2015 at 4:00 AM

Giving somebody a $700 ticket for jaywalking or failing to push a cross button is absurd. People avoid letting their meters run out to escape a $25 dollar parking tickets. If they actually started to regularly enforce the $50 fine that most other provinces use for people caught jaywalking, that would be a sufficient deterrent. There is no need to create a punishment that well exceeds that of a speeding ticket, passing a school bus and not wearing a bicycle helmet for failing to press a crosswalk button. By all means, crack down on jaywalking, crack down on drivers who don't yield to pedestrians, but be bloody reasonable about it. — Safety my ass
