England Should Ban Jaywalking!
Jaywalk –verb (used without object)
to cross a street at a place other than a regular crossing or in a heedless manner, as diagonally or against a traffic light.
Should we have it in the UK?
The ‘Merkins have a lot of stupid Laws – often only in one particular state.
California, for example, has a law that everyone must grow long hair and play Death or Thrash Metal. And their wives are allowed to blow their heads off with shotguns when they get famous. Ohio has something in their Laws about crap US football teams and corn. And serial killers are encouraged.
But much as it pains me to admit, one of their laws is just downright sensible – and that is the aforementioned ‘Jaywalking’.
If you go pottering across the road in New York, a big porker in a rain mac will shoot you dead. You don’t even have to be Muslim!
In Bromsgrove Town Centre, UK, however, it seems to be perfectly acceptable to ignore the two pelican crossings which are around 50 yards apart, and go Ninjaing between the traffic regardless.
People seem to see this as fine, for the sake of saving a good three or four seconds of their life where they’d have to walk to one of the crossings… and then they get splatted by a filtering motorbike, sending all their bags of pound shop goodies flying through the air.
This has happened to a few people I know over the last few years. There weren’t any real injuries, by some miracle, but the aftermath in one involved the stupid bints husband calling up my mate afterwards threatening him and trying to make him pay out compensation.
Compensation for your wife being a dipshit who couldn’t be *rsed to use one of the PEDESTRIAN crossings???
I’ve had a few near-misses myself when these idiots suddenly pop out between the cars, not looking and certainly not thinking.
I will tell you that if I ever hit one they better be dead, because I would beat the ever-loving shit out of them if I or my bike got damaged!
And that’s why it should be a crime in the UK.
Because it’s yet another thing that innocent people get punished for and end up paying out for, all because some retarded mouth-breather feels it’s everybody elses fault for them being a dick head.
Watch for around 2:20 into this video for a prime example:
