This is not a joke. I received this email yesterday morning.

On Tuesday August 12 the ********* Police Department will be monitoring the crosswalks from our Parking Lots A, B & C to check that people are using the crosswalks across Hoes Lane. If they catch people crossing outside of the designated walks they can issue a ticket for “Jay Walking” which they have done in the past.
I do not know what time they will be out but we have been told that they will be out there. Please notify all faculty, students and staff.

10 points to the person who can construct the most depressing social commentary on the implications of this email. Any form of artistic media will accepted.
