    I thought jullani brought in the rule about crossing streets with ipods in when he was mayor a while back?

    Meh. They're not even allowed to cross the road if it's not at a designated crossing, what do you expect.

    Don't see the problem myself. If people can't act responsibly then someone has to do it for them. Despite the scaremongering though Spen, it won't happen here.

New Yorkers have several forces and cross service powers.

    I once got done for j-walking in Canada (where I grew up). It probably seems like a silly law to folks here - but over there where the roads are twice as wide most of the time, it usually makes sense to cross at a designated place where you won't get run over.

    It rarely enforced and more of a big-city thing.
