It’s 2:30 am and Harold and Kumar are at a deserted intersection waiting to cross the road. The “do not walk” sign is lit. Kumar encourages Harold to walk across anyway. As soon as Harold steps into the road, a trooper appears out of nowhere and gives him a $220 ticket for jaywalking.
At what point does crossing a street cease to be a problem? Is a ticket justified at 2:30 am, especially since there is no traffic and therefore there is no negative externality caused to motorists? Using this scene is an excellent way to illustrate rational behavior and marginal thinking.Available on iTunes Available on Amazon.com
