  3. I did this one night in Dessau and was stopped by police and promptly given a 5 euro citation. I'm not German so that is bat shit crazy to me.

  4. In Munich, you have a very, very high chance of getting fined for jaywalking if any police officer is just remotely in sight. They just don't have anything else to do. Fun fact (tested myself): If you jaywalk diagonally over two red lights, you'll definitely get charged the double and probably will get shouted at for being irresponsible. That's how Munich works... Needless to say it was hard for me to adapt to it after two years of Paris (where a red light means "just keep your eyes open" and a green light means "if you're lucky you won't get run over").

    1. Well, you should be thankful to them that Munich isn't a filthy, jaywalking-riddled hellhole like Paris

  5. As a German: That is one of the quickest way to lose your driving license and get you signed up for an MPU. Plus get fined 5€. We like our rules.

  6. Well ironically some of my German friends in Berlin used to jaywalk and encourage me to do so with them :D!

  7. Haha! Jaywalking in Singapore is similarly frowned upon except the fine is $50. The foreigners leads the citizenry astray.
