Elderly Woman Ticketed For Walking Too Slowly

I hate to give the 'Asshat of the Week' award to one of Los Angeles' finest, but 'Officer Kelly' left me no choice:

LOS ANGELES -- An 82-year-old woman has received a $114 ticket for
taking too long to cross a street in the San Fernando Valley, Calif.


Mayvis Coyle said she began shuffling with her cane when the light
was green, but was unable to make it to the other side before it turned red.


"It turned red before I could get over. There he was, waiting, the
motorcycle cop," Coyle told the Los Angeles Daily News. "He said, `You're
obstructing the flow of traffic."'


Coyle is only one of seniors at Monte Vista Mobile Estates that are
upset over signals they think are too short to safely cross five lanes of
traffic, the Daily News reported.


At least one of the seniors reportedly calls a cab just to cross
the street.

Hey dick peole in the intersection have the right of way so if people are getting hurt it's because drivers are not paying attention.

MAYBE they should make the light a little longer and people like you will just have to deal with the pain in the ass intersection TO SAVE LIVES so get your head straight

So I guess ticketing the elderly is the answer to the intersection problem. Great job living up to your name.
