Hialeah Campus students and staff who do not use the crosswalk on West 49th Street run the risk of receiving a $77.50 fine for jaywalking.
The regulation was always in place, but the campus recently started posting a reminder on its facebook page.
The 2012 Florida Statutes Title XXIII MOTOR VEHICLES Chapter 316 states that “No pedestrian shall, except in a marked crosswalk, cross a roadway at any other place than by a right angles to the curb.”
Thus far, pedestrians have obeyed the law, according to Ana María Bradley-Hess, Dean of Academic and Student Affairs at the campus.
