The city of Columbus Ohio has recently initiated a "pedestrian safety" campaign.
The top priority?  More stringent enforcement of jaywalking laws, including ticketing jaywalkers.

Anything else?  Hmmmmmmm, let's see....
Are they doing anything about motorists who fly in and out of parking lots and driveways at full speed?

Are they ticketing motorists who violate NO TURN ON RED intersections?

Are they ensuring drivers slow down and signal when making a turn?

Are they doing anything about bicyclists who fly down the middle of the sidewalks like they were in a race?

Are they ticketing bicyclists who run stop signs and red lights?

All they seem to care about is "blaming pedestrians" for all manners of traffic ills.

As a full time pedestrian and bus rider it feels great to have a cultural status comparable to that of the Jewish population of Germany during the early 1940s or of a black citizen of Mississippi during the 1950s.

"Pedestrian Safety" is clearly a synonym for "Pedestrian Persecution".
