I don't have a problem with this as long as it is restricted to the most egregious pedestrian behavior.

A year ago I might have felt differently, but since I moved to a place on Conn Ave (still carfree!), I have seen some really atrocious pedestrians. People lazily walking across a busy, six-lane, island-less arterial when they are 100 yards from a signaled crosswalk should be ticketed. In those situations, the ped isn't the only one at risk; when drivers are forced to stop short or swerve, everyone is at risk.

If they start ticketing people for not waiting for the light at a corner with no traffic, I will be upset. But if they start going after people who could cause accidents, fine by me.
