Jaywalkers who try to cut corners in Los Angeles may find it's a costly shortcut.
Police tell KTLA-TV that they're starting a zero-tolerance policy for jaywalkers in this holiday season, especially in the historic downtown area.
A citation will set you back $191.
Financially strapped Los Angeles could use the cash but police say the crackdown is about safety, not money.
