J. Gresham Machen on Jaywalking laws…

J. Gresham Machen on Jaywalking laws:

“These anti-pedestrian laws are intended either for the protection of the pedestrian, or for the convenience of the motorist. In either case . . . they are wrong. If they are intended to protect the pedestrian from himself, they are paternalistic. I am opposed to paternalism.”
