Perhaps it is a good thing!
The same dumb souls also exist here.
They are everywhere!
I admit, I've done it myself.
I've done it too when there's no cars around and the pedestrian light takes a long time to change to walk. My wife won't do it so sometimes I just stand there impatiently waiting for the walk sign. I have to work on my patience and that is good practice, at least that is what I tell myself. :)
I thought it was just Americans who jaywalked into traffic. Great pattern and reflections in the crossing.
You have so many people there. Very nice photo.
I learned to cross the street while growing up in New York City. New Yorkers' attitude is often to find the smallest spot in traffic you might squeeze through, make eye contact with the oncoming driver while whispering "I dare you. I've got a great lawyer." I hope I'm better behaved in other parts of the world.
