Is jaywalking common in your N American city? Virtually every pedestrian here does.

Cheers,
Chris

Yes, very common in Chicago! But gotta watch out where you are driving at, some jaywalkers are very gutless, try to drive in WEST SIDE of chicago and you will know what I mean! :runaway:

I don't see nearly as many people who jaywalk in the Northwest as East Coast cities.

Thank you for your answers.

It's interesting to see out of the cities listed in that sentence some messages above that jaywalking's common, because my many days in many of them revealed only five to ten percent of kerbside crossers stepping across their roadways. Maybe I should've put my question like 'is no jaywalking uncommon in your NA town?', coz here only exceptionally slow walkers are the crossers remaining kerbside, you know what I mean?

:sleepy: I'm just remembering a reason I thought of late Winter, being right-hand turns at red traffic lights having always been prohibited on L'Ile de Montréal Island (the prohibition was lifted from the rest of the province just a few years ago). Plus I'm recalling how unsettling it was crossing the streets in all those other cities where red traffic lights don't instruct motorists to remain stopped (plus what business was it of the pedestrians' there to become preoccupied with glaring at me?!?) --- err, I think :clown: I'm answering my own question, although I am still interested in learning what other cities over here......

Cheers,
Chris
