  •  The only reason there is a jaywalking law is to (0+ / 0-)

    define who is legally responsible if a vehicle hits the pedestrian.

    If you cross in the middle of the street, as we all do occasionally, or cross on a green light you,  the pedestrian, assume the risk.

    All other instances it is the motorist's responsibility to not run over the pedestrian.
