You Can Get A $109 Fine For Walking When A Crosswalk Sign Turns Red In BC

While the rising number of distracted driving fines would come shocks few, there are numerous other infractions one can incur on the road. And, a person doesn’t even have to be inside a vehicle to get one.

BC RCMP released another instalment of #TicketTuesday today on their Twitter account, demonstrating one such fine.

In this instance, one need only walk a bit too soon, or when not permitted, to incur a fine. Not only can a pedestrian get fined for this, but they’ll get slapped with a hefty $109.

Crosswalk Fine in BC

So, while it may seem fine to walk when there isn’t any traffic in your relative vicinity, you may want to take a second glance for police or wait it out.

In addition to the crosswalk, pedestrians should also ensure they aren’t walking off of the sidewalk when one is available. Although it may seem a bit shocking, even this behaviour comes with a $109 ticket.

While these fines may shock some, there are a vast variety of penalties handed out every month. For example, eating while driving, driving with a pet on your lap, or driving with two earbuds in all count as fineable offences.
