The Anti-Pedestrian Jihad Continues

In the last few weeks, I’d heard two stories from friends in LA about receiving tickets for jaywalking. (The best part of these stories is the cop filling out the ticket, which is formatted to address moving violations from cars, and marking the section which highlights the offender’s speed: 3mph). I had always thought the stories of people getting tickets for jaywalking were apocryphal, but on top of my friends’ experiences, today comes word from the American Historical Association’s annual conference in Atlanta that a well-known historian was arrested and thrown to the ground for jay-walking. Pedestrians of the world, unite!
