  1. per Jaywalking
    That book, Fighting Traffic, has some great graphics & photos from when people saw cars as a menace. They seem kinda strange today.
    As far as the term jaywalking, he explains in the book that a jay was a hayseed, hillbilly type who didn’t know how to behave in a city.
    Seems kinda funny that we have a legal term based on an ethnic slur.
