Jaywalkers Will Be Arrested It Traffic Head's Plan Accepted (l*g. U. i. Par.

There is one basic difference between the two. The jay can fly and the jaywalker just THINKS he can. New York City has always been the happy hunting ground for the jaywalker. It's not that the red lights here are any prettier to stroll in the glow of, nor that the taxis are any less swift at biting into one's coattails. The reason a jaywalker feels at city police before the law becomes enforced. First of all, New Yorkers are busy and always in a hurry; it may not take much more time to go to the corner or to wait for the green light, but it takes some more time. JAncl some is too much. Second, New Yorkers are trained to take care of themselves. They'd rather fight their way through a traffic jam than fight with a cop, but if the necessity arises, they'll tackle both battles at once. New Yorkers, by nature, are independent and want more than anything else to be left alone. If anyone tries to tell them how to avoid being killed, they will be unap- ionic in New York is that there has preciativc. Their reaction: "Who's getting killed, you or me, hey?" And f'nally, as mentioned before, this is the traditional habitat of the never been a legal regulation against crossing a street in the middle, or against a light, regardless- oi how the traffic is teeming. Only here could a pedestrian cross Madison Avenue, stepping off the -cur; at 45th Street, and re-mounting at 47th Street, without getting a ticket. Many New York pedestrians have died this way. But thp point is, they died free. There was no traffic cop' in the ambulance saying "Buddy, there's a fine for that." Knowing all this, it was startling to learn this week that N.Y.C. Traffic Commissioner T. T. Wiley is planning to put a ban on jaywalk- ng. he notes that there are not only, "absent-minded" persons get- ing knocked . down regularly for crossing streets in inappropriate places, but there are also "chronic, ntentional violators" who are hold- streets-in diagonal directions. Wiley telieves these-.offenders should be made to pay .(-probably about 52) for the- inconvenience iey cause—to motorists', hospital attendants and people who are late fcf the theatre every time there's NOW-TWQ GREAT BOTTLINGS! $ A 85 86 PROOF • BOTTLED IN BOND 10 ° 4 5 4/5 Ql. 4/5 Qt.
