Frankie vs Cindy Day is the new Drake vs. Meek Mill.

Re: “I am a pedestrian, and I am an idiot


"Are people crossing in the middle of an empty street ticketed? No!"

It's unfortunate you said that because you actually do make a few valid points. But I have to say, I'm gonna go out on a limb and assume you're white, because otherwise you would know better. While I personally think HRM police are some of the nicest I've ever encountered, there's no denying that a select few tend to use excuses such as jaywalking (even when it's in the middle of an empty street) to stop someone. And guess what, it tends to happen more to people who aren't white. All you have to do is take a drive or a walk down Gottingen to see it first hand.

And for the record, I'm a driver, in fact, I love cars. But yet this article still completely coincides with my opinion. Fining pedestrians 700 bucks is ludicrous for a minor offence. I'm not suggesting there should be no fine at all, but let's keep some perspective on the severity of the crime. And on top of that, it really does seem to discriminate against the poor or the people who are dedicated enough to reduce congestion and pollutions by walking rather than driving. Like I said, I love driving and a love cars, but come on it's a privilege we're able to still have because of people who decide to walk instead. The least we could do is give them a break on the jay-walking, especially if it does not impede the flow of traffic or safety for both the pedestrian and the driver. Besides, if someone jay-walks unsafely in front of me while driving where I may not be able to stop in time, I react with the horn, as I would a car who might dart out in front of me. The horn is primarily meant to be as a warning device anyway, not a mouth piece for road rage.
