Jaywalking

Jaywalking is an offence under the Road Rules 2014 (NSW) which is punishable by a penalty notice or a maximum fine in court of $2,200.

Here’s a summary of the rules:

  1. You can only start crossing at a pedestrian light if the ‘man’ is green
  2. You can only start crossing at traffic lights, where there are no pedestrian lights, if the lights are green or flashing yellow, or if there are no red lights showing, provided you do not cause a hazard or obstruct drivers, riders or pedestrians
  3. You are allowed to cross if you are more than 20 metres away from lights provided you do not cause a hazard or obstruct drivers, riders or pedestrians

In all cases, you must get to the other side in a timely manner.
