What’s the Worst That Could Happen?
If You JaywalkMost likely: Your chances of getting ticketed are slim. However, some cities―including St. Paul and Milwaukee―target jaywalkers as a way to raise money, fining each perp as much as $60.
Worst case: A collision. In 2006, more than 1,000 people were killed in the United States while improperly crossing the street. For a jaywalker (jay meant "stupid" or "fool" in early-20th-century American slang), the real mean streets are in Delaware, Florida, and New Mexico, which have the highest number of pedestrian fatalities per 100,000 residents, according to a 2006 study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
