      I see reading comprehension isn’t your thing. I believe it is possible to be in a crosswalk while crossing when you shouldn’t be. Specifically if you think the walk and don’t walk lights are just suggestions.

    Like many pedestrians, I can attest to the fact that many, many drivers are just incredibly stupid – texting, talking on cell phones, not even looking to see if a pedestrian has the right of way.

    I used to work in that area and people not using the cross-walk correctly is a big issue there. It was almost a daily occurrence to have someone hold up traffic by jay walking at that intersection. I can guarantee you one thing, he won’t walk in front of a car again, serves him right. If I was the driver I would take him to small claims court over the damage to the vehicle.
