To the editor:
I’m really tired of pedestrians not using crosswalks. It seems to me that jaywalking is part of being a Jayhawk these days. Bolting out on Mass. Street is common place these days, I know, but when driving, do you drive on the sidewalk? Do you run red lights? If you said “no” to either of those, then use crosswalks instead of just slithering across the street in the thick of traffic. If you do use crosswalks, wait until it’s green to cross the street. If you have small children, keep a hold of them, please, so they don’t run out into the street unknowingly.
If the Lawrence Police Department really wanted to make some money, they’d start ticketing pedestrians for not abiding by the law. I’d get a ticket if I ran a red light. So should pedestrians for crossing the street when they have a red light.
