“Jaywalking” is not a legal term and does not appear in the Georgia Code. Even so, people often use “jaywalking” to describe a pedestrian crossing outside of a crosswalk. In fact, crossing the street outside of a crosswalk is perfectly LEGAL in most places, as long as the pedestrians yield to traffic. These images illustrate the law.
I am sorry the images did not come thru on the copy & paste, but the above comes from the Georgia Law... look it up. The girls were not in the wrong.. As far as being TOO YOUNG to be in the area at around 5 pm, there are alot of homes on the streets off of milledge not to mention the High School is right there. They will be entering college in about 8 months and had every right to be there. The young man on the other hand had no right to be behind the wheel of that car in the first place. As someone else said the speed he had to be traveling to hit the girls that hard had to be fast. The traffic that time of night is at a snails pace which is how fast he should have been going . The girls were in a turn lane not a passing lane or speeding lane.. If this poor child has life long injuries, they need to put him under the jail. A better idea may be to let some moms have him for about an hour.posted @ Saturday, January 12, 2013 - 21:07

Full text of the Use of Public Right-of-Ways ordinance draft is below. Highlight: Would set hours of operation of each Athens-Clarke County "building campus" -- e.g. City Hall, the courthouse and Dougherty Street government building -- at 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily. Park hours would either be set by the Athens-Clarke County manager or the Mayor and Commission. The ordinance has been derided by members of Occupy Athens and others as seeking to enforce a curfew on public property, thus damaging their First Amendment right to peacably assemble for long-term protests. read more
