Re: Drugs

The problem with the concept of Jaywalking is that it seems to criminalise harmless crossing the road when it's safe to do so.

If you are wandering in the road when there is traffic about, you are a danger to yourself and others and there may be a case for prosecution. If on the other hand you cross the road at a sensible time and perfectly safely, it's a waste of time and money to treat that as wrongdoing, which I have heard stories of many times.
