82 Year Old Woman Cited for Crossing the Street Slowly
In another story of carried by many papers as a "man bites dog" curiosity, an 82 year old woman in California was fined $114 by Los Angeles Police on Foothill Blvd in Sunland, CA for crossing the street too slowly. The green phase of the 5 lane arterial is so short that younger people were seen running across the intersection.
The incident brought to mind this video of pedestrian road rage (watch for the airbag).
Fortunately the local paper took the incident more seriously, from the LA Daily News
"Surely, it would be better - and more economical, too - to adjust the light a few seconds instead of sending out cops to bust kids and old folks."
