82-Year-Old That Received $114 Ticket for Slow Crossing Gets Famous

This is just outrageous if you haven’t already seen it – an 82-year-old gets $114 ticket for slow crossing. This has actually inspired an editorial to the Sacramento Bee, coverage around the globe, and some dialogue within Caltrans. Now, the 82-year-old woman, Mayvis Coyle, is becoming famous.

Hopefully Los Angeles will take the public outrage to heart and start bucking the trend of their 60 year fetish with the automobile. To be fair, there are a lot of great bike/ped advocates in the L.A. region and I am sure this will not be brushed aside lightly. How can it, with so much media attention? Score a strange victory for the pedestrians! Thanks to Maureen for bringing this to my attention.
