Next time, you'd better beat it

Across the street, that is.
Woman, 82, Gets Ticket for Slow Crossing

LOS ANGELES - An 82-year-old woman received a $114 ticket for taking too long to cross a street. Mayvis Coyle said she began shuffling with her cane across Foothill Boulevard in the San Fernando Valley when the light was green, but was unable to make it to the other side before it turned red.

She said the motorcycle officer who ticketed her on Feb. 15 told her she was obstructing traffic.

"I think it's completely outrageous," said Coyle, who described herself as a Cherokee medicine woman. "He treated me like a 6-year-old, like I don't know what I'm doing."

That is outrageous. Pedestrians and bikers get penalized too easily when it is them who should get favors because they are the ones doing more work to get around than those driving the vehicles.

Not to mention cutting down the pollution, decreasing wear and tear on the roads, lowering their stress levels with exercise and ultimately saving the country thousands of dollars in medical costs...or something like that.
