Have you done it yourself?

More importantly, do you consider it a crime or a nuisance?

It's more of a nuisance. I've done it once or twice and it's really only annoying to the person driving, to be honest.

Yes.

And in some states, it's not even considered a crime.

Yes, and it's more annoying as a driver when people fucking push the button to stop all traffic at an intersection and make everyone sit there for 5 fucking minutes...

It's annoying for the driver. Am I supposed to be on my toes at all times because some idiot might walk right out in front of my car while I clearly have the right of way? I realize that pedestrians are given the legal advantage because they have no defense against a car, but personally I think that if someone's jaywalking and they get ran over it's their own damn fault.

All the time, but I don't do it if there's a car coming, that's kinda retarded. I wait till the road is clear then I walk.

I don't consider jaywalking a crime, but it can be a nuisance, all right. It just has to be up to the pedestrians to judge from situation to situation whether they'll cause problems for the drivers by stepping out onto the street in that exact moment.

Only when no one is coming. It's more nuisance if anything. I don't mind if someone does it and makes me stop when I'm driving, but I'm pretty laid back.

Yes I have done it, and I also think it it's not so bad, but idiots that don't fucking look to see if a car is coming down the street before crossing should be responsible if they get hit. I almost hit some kid on a bike yesterday when he just decided to cross when I had the green light to turn left. I'm not sure why he decide to go after the car in front of me when I was only a few feet behind it.


It's pronounced Say-ban

The more important question; who has actually used a crosswalk?

It's more of a nuisance. It shouldn't be a crime, especially if you're walking on a strip, and the nearest crosswalk is a mile or so down the road.
