We should start a critical mass pedestrian day, where everybody comes out - on foot - and jaywalks! Taking back the streets!

I jaywalk all the time. It's such a ridiculous 'Canadian' law (I don't know of any jaywalking laws in Europe). I jaywalk with my kids in tow as well. Like most pedestrians and cyclists I assess the risk before I do my frogger moves. Most intersections where I jaywalk are clear in both directions with good visibility. There is something quite ridiculous about standing at an empty interesection with no cars for miles around waiting for the lights to change. You can't turn peoplke into robots. As you say in the article Ry, people will do what feels natural to them.

OK, I'm off jaywalking - who's coming?!
