You look both ways before crossing the street, right? Do you ever look for a cop? You should, at least in downtown Seattle and Belltown.
The city has been running a series of jaywalking stings this year, and cops have been handing out $56 tickets.
The city is running the stings as part of the master plan to make Seattle safer and more walkable.
If anyone sees these stings going down, please immediately e-mail belltownpeople AT gmail-dot-com. I’d like to set up my own “sting” to see how many crack deals go down in plain observation while the SPD is targetting hard core jwalking criminals… the nerve.
