diy crosswalk DIY crosswalk is criminal mischief

A man in Muncie, Indiana was charged with criminal mischief for painting his own crosswalk at an intersection near his house, claiming that cars weren’t slowing down for the stop signs there; the city refused previous requests from Whitney Stump to have a crosswalk put in.

Stump, a 27-year-old Ball State University graduate student and father, says he was arrested in July on a charge of criminal mischief for creating the crosswalk at the intersection of Dicks and North streets. A police officer then warned him after he went back to touch up the paint in August, and the county prosecutor decided to charge him again.

The city has not removed or covered the DIY crosswalk. – [via] Link.
