Fellow scofflaws, beware. Kansas City police are on the hunt for jaywalkers downtown during the next five days, and you may not see them coming.
The first rule of jaywalking, D.T.A. -- don't trust anybody. Plain clothes
cops are on the streets just waiting to bust your ass.
The homeless guy begging for change could be a cop. The woman
walking her dog by the Sprint Center -- cop. Cigarette smoking business
man outside of the H&R Block building -- cop.
If you do get
busted, how much is it going to cost? I'm told that's up to a judge.
KCPD is offering tips normally reserved for trick-or-treaters ("dress
in light colors and wear reflective material") and douche lords
("alcohol and drugs can impair your ability to walk safely").
keep it in the crosswalks like the fine young lads in the picture.
