For Pedestrians

(JayWalking Citations)

JaywalkersFailing to obey a DONT WALK signal is commonly referred to as jaywalking. Many municipalities, including Seattle, have begun to issue citations for illegal pedestrian crossings. Citations for jaywalking are typically issued as part of emphasis patrols, where a number of officers target a particular intersection for enforcement. While jaywalking citations may be effective in stopping some pedestrians from crossing against the signal, the overall effectiveness of jaywalking enforcement has not been evaluated.
