    Hi, the other day outside my office, it was during rush hour. A number of my colleagues were simply crossing the roads to go home get the train, bus, etc. as we usually do, when there was a police officer nearby who was hiding and simply handing out fines to anyone caught jaywalking,

    I know it is against the law to partake in jaywalking but this "revenue raising" seems ludicrous considering most people were taking extra caution whilst crossing the road anyway. Is there any form of recourse for my colleagues as $71 is a lot of money to fork out for this scenario.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    I have never heard of any arguments to defeat a jaywalking fine. I think you need to accept that you broke the law, got caught and take it on the chin.
