Mainly jaywalking is now used as a reason to stop and individual, it's an offense, but soooooooo many people do it. A police officer could spend an entire shift writing citations. People are supposed to used crosswalks. What people don't understand is if they get hit outside if the crosswalk and the driver of the vehicle wasn't doing anything wrong, ie speeding, dwi etc.... Then the accident and hospital bills are on the pedestrian. At least in the city of Dallas.
