Due to the high number of Pedestrians being hit by a car, Jaywalking tickets are increasing in Hudson County.
If you get hit by a car in some Hudson County towns, you might get hit again: with a jaywalking ticket and a $200 fine.
Worse, new state legislation allows town judges to impose up to 15 days community service on jaywalkers.
Some residents are claiming that they’ve been ticketed for jaywalking. To add insult to injury, they say heartless cops have given them tickets for hundreds of dollars in fines while they’ve been receiving medical aid at the scene of an accident! The jaywalking charge alone is now a $200 fine (doubled because of the new state legislation).
So, would you rather get a ticket for jaywalking or get hit by a car? your choice.
