Forced jaywalking needs to stop

Posted By on Thu, Oct 26, 2017 at 11:03 AM

To the taxi driver who stopped traffic at a non-existent intersection to insist I cross in front of you while three cars waited behind you. Unless you’re handing the $697.00 out the window for the jaywalking fine, I’m going to wait and cross when it’s clear. Also, holding up three cars and your passenger to let one person cross the street is not nice, it’s rude to everyone involved and unsafe. Condescendingly yelling out your window at me because I refused to take you up on your offer crossed a line. You drive for a profession. Start following the rules of the road and stop getting offended when people don’t take you up on your offer to put them in direct danger. —Frustrated Pedestrian
