faster, faster

This is harsh -- LA cops ticketed and 82-year-old lady for taking too long to cross the road. It's gonna set the lady back $114. Obviously, this lady doesn't move as quickly as she used to -- but the road she was crossing is five lanes wide and the signal only gives you 20 seconds to get across! Even high school students had to run to make it before the light turned green again.

That's pretty rude, and dangerous. They say nobody walks in LA -- and the fact that it can be DANGEROUS to walk there just reinforces the problem. Because really, wouldn't you rather give this lady a few extra seconds to cross the road than have her behind the wheel?
