Police Issuing Tickets For Jaywalking Near Hialeah Campus

By Iliana Torres

Hialeah Campus students and staff who do not use the crosswalk on West 49th Street run the risk of receiving a $77.50 fine for jaywalking.

The regulation was always in place, but the campus recently started posting a reminder on its facebook page.

The 2012 Florida Statutes Title XXIII MOTOR VEHICLES Chapter 316 states that “No pedestrian shall, except in a marked crosswalk,  cross a roadway at any other place than by a right angles to the curb.”

Thus far, pedestrians have obeyed the law, according to  Ana María Bradley-Hess, Dean of Academic and Student Affairs at the campus.
