BELIEVE IT OR N0T: Woman, 82, Gets Ticket for Slow Crossing....

The news this morning carried the story of an “82-year-old woman received a $114 ticket for taking too long to cross a street.” Mayvis Coyle apparently “began shuffling with her cane across Foothill Boulevard in the San Fernando Valley when the light was green.” Too slow, a motorcycle cop thought and gave Cole a ticket. Los Angeles police Sgt. Mike Zaboski of the Valley Traffic Division said that the motorcycle cop’s response was a “crack down” – that’s right a “crack down” – on “improperly cross streets because pedestrian accidents are above normal.”
