READERS REACT: Pedestrian slapped with jaywalking ticket after being hit in Surrey

Some of our readers were very vocal about the punishment handed out by the Surrey RCMP

Talk about having a bad day.

On Monday, a 57-year-old man was hit by a car around 6:40 p.m. in the 6900-block of 120th Street.

The man was taken to hospital with minor injuries, but not before Surrey RCMP slapped him with a $100 ticket for jaywalking.

This is the second time this year that the Surrey RCMP have announced that they’ve ticketed someone for jaywalking after they were hit by a car.

Well, it seems like you, the readers, were happy with the swift hand of justice dealt by the Surrey RCMP.

Here’s what some of you had to say.
