jaywalking


The sign says, Use the Bridge or get Fined RM500 (USD134). Most of us are terrified of dealing with the authorities but nobody is afraid of crossing roads. That makes this sign redundant (like most 'enforced' rules.) Never seen anyone getting fined. Have you seen someone cross a 6-lane highway? Quite a sight. And the cops don't follow for fear of being runover.

Tell me about it! In Jakarta, fences are built along the highways so people will cross on the right place, but noooo....they just climb the fence!

You dont have to fine someone who crosses that kind of road, Darwin will take care of that for you.
