Bill Status: 

Approved by the Assembly; under consideration by Senate committee

Transform Position: 

Support

This bill would repeal the law that makes jaywalking illegal and require local ordinances to mirror state law. Jaywalking would no longer be a criminal offense, and associated fines and fees would be prohibited. It would also allow pedestrian crossing on yellow lights at signalized intersections. See our letter of support.
