JAYWALKING BECOMES AN OFFENCE FROM TODAY WITH THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE PEDESTRIAN CROSSING RULES. UNDER THESE RULES, A JAYWALKER IS LIABLE TO BE FINED UP TO $50. HOWEVER, A 'GRACE PERIOD' OF TWO MONTHS HAS BEEN ALLOWED DURING WHICH ERRANT PEDESTRIANS WHO FLOUT THE RULES WILL BE ISSUED A WARNING TICKET. FROM SEPTEMBER 1, THE FINE WILL APPLY. UNDER THE RULES, JAYWALKING MEANS NOT USING DESIGNATED CROSSING FACILITIES WHEN CROSSING A ROAD AT A POINT WITHIN 50 METRES OF SUCH FACILITIES. THESE DESIGNATED FACILITIES ARE OVERHEAD BRIDGES, UNDERPASS, ZEBRA CROSSING (WITH BEACONS) AND CROSSINGS WITH GREEN MAN-RED MAN LIGHTS
