If you base your decision on how much a jaywalking ticket is, sure!
San Diego is beset with all sorts of city hall corruption, a spiraling city budget deficit, and a thoroughly jaded electorate. On the plus side, while it is one of the most expensive cities in which to live, unemployment is one of the lowest in the nation. If you are in high tech or biotech, you should be set. Police here are no better nor worse than in most other areas I’ve visited or lived, and while the region tends to vote heavily Republican, it’s still pretty socially moderate. I think that’s because while there’s a lot of military here, many of them are young.
But I’ll have to agree that’s a steep fine. This wouldn’t be like your third one in a month or anything, would it? :eek:
